Q. How do I cite and reference a journal article without a DOI?

Answer

If the article was found on a library database (e.g. Academic Search Complete):

Reference:

Author(s) last name, Initial. (Year). Title of article. Title of Journal, volume#(issue #), first page-last page.

Example

Philpott, S. (2017) Planet of the Australians: Indigenous athletes and Australian football's sports diplomacy. Third World Quarterly, 38(4).

If the article was found on a website that is not a library database:

Reference:

Author(s) last name, Initial. (Year). Title of article. Title of Journal, volume#(issue #), first page-last page. http://www.website.url

Example

Maske, P. R. & DePountis, V. (2018). The impact of transition services in facilitating college degree completion for students with visual impairments: Post-bachelor's degree perspectives. The Journal of Postsecondary Education and Disability, 31(1), 5-15.  https://www.ahead.org/professional-resources/publications/jped/archived-jped/jped-volume-31
