official announcement from FSEHS to implement all these rules.


General rules

General Rules

  • Include same elements, in the same order, as used in a “fixed-media” source.

  • Add as much electronic retrieval information as needed for others to locate the sources you cite.

  • It is preferable to cite the final version (i.e., archival copy or version of record)

APA style guide, pp. 1-6

No more retrieval statements?

  • No retrieval date is necessary for content that is not likely to be changed or updated, such as a journal article

  • With the exception of hard-to-find books and other documents of limited circulation delivered by electronic databases, the database name is no longer a necessary element of the reference.

Digital object identifiers doi

Digital Object Identifiers (DOI)

    • Link to article if have authorized access OR

    • Abstract and article for purchase
