The CINAHL database often does not include the DOI in the record, especially in the case of older articles. If there is a DOI you may find it in the database record of the full text article or within the article itself.
If there is a DOI in the record of the full text or in the article itself, substitute it for the database retrieval statement in your APA citation from the CINAL database:
Twaddell, J., & Johnson, J. (2007). A TIME for nursing portfolios: a tool for career development. Advances in Neonatal Care,7(3), 146-150.
If there is no DOI in the record of the full text or in the article itself, substitute the name of the database where you retrieved the full text in for “CINAHL” or “EBSCOhost” in the database retrieval statement in your APA citation:
Twaddell, J., & Johnson, J. (2007). A TIME for nursing portfolios: a tool for career development. Advances in Neonatal Care,7(3), 146-150. Retrieved from YourJournals@Ovid.
