  • Parenthetical citations: (Lyons, 2009; Schaefer & Shapiro, 2019; Schulman, 2019)
  • Narrative citations: Lyons (2009), Schaefer and Shapiro (2019), and Schulman (2019)
  • If a magazine article has a DOI, include the DOI in the reference (as in the Schaefer and Shapiro example).
  • If the magazine article does not have a DOI and is from an academic research database, end the reference after the page range (as in the Lyons example). Do not include database information in the reference. The reference in this case is the same as for a print magazine article.
  • If the magazine article does not have a DOI but does have a URL that will resolve for readers (e.g., it is from an online magazine that is not part of a database), include the URL of the article at the end of the reference (as in the Schulman example).
  • If the magazine article does not have volume, issue, and/or page numbers (e.g., because it is from an online magazine), omit the missing elements from the reference (as in the Schulman example).

Magazine article references are covered in Section 10.1 of the APA Publication Manual, Seventh Edition
