  • For articles with one or two authors include both family names in the citation.
  • If a work has 3-20 authors, include the first author's family name followed by et al.
  • Some online articles do not have page numbers, so the DOI or URL will be sufficient.
  • If the article does not have a DOI, use the URL of the website.
  • If you are citing an advance release version, insert "Advance online publication" before the DOI or URL.
  • If you are referencing a long URL, you are encouraged to use a URL shortening service, e.g. Bitly or TinyURL..
