ASA Citation – Journal article


Hello Today I’m going to show you how to create
an American Sociological Association citation for a journal article. Then, you’ll be able to create one on your
own. Let’s get started! Here is a citation for a journal article. The parts of this citation include: The author name The year of publication The title of the article The journal title The volume and issue number of the journal And the page range where the article appears. Let’s take a closer look at these parts. First, include the author’s name. You’ll want
to invert the author’s name. That means you start with the last name first,
followed by a comma, then the author’s first name and middle initial,
followed by a period. Next is the year of publication, followed
by a period. Next, include the article title. Note that the article title is enclosed within
quotation marks and ends with a period. Also make a note that most of the words in
this journal article title have been capitalized. In ASA format when you create a second line
in your citation, be sure to indent three spaces. You’ll also want to double space your citation. The next part of this citation is the journal
title. Note the journal title has been italicized
and is followed by a period. Next, include the volume and issue number
where the journal article appears.This should be followed by a colon. Finally, include the page range that the article
appears on. End your page range with a period. And that’s how easy it is to create a citation
for a journal article using ASA citation format! If you have questions about ASA citation format,
