Chicago citation DOI

Concidering citing Chicago article with DOI within citation machine most likely, you will access journal articles through large databases such as Academic Search Complete or JSTOR that index hundreds (even thousands!) of journals and other periodicals. You can access databases for free from the University Libraries website. A DOI or stable URL must be included. If no issue number is available, only include volume. Volume and issue information can usually be found in a few different places: at the top or bottom of the first page of an article; on one of the first pages of the journal issue; on the spine of the journal. Volume and issue are important for locating journals, especially for journals that have been in publication for many years and for journals that publish more than one issue per year. For print journals and magazines, you will use the same format for electronic journals and magazines, excluding the access date and URL.

Typically, it is sufficient to cite newspaper and magazine articles and content entirely within the body of the paper. Special Note about Electronic Journals: Electronic journals are periodicals that are digitally produced, published, and maintained. Some journals publish both a print and online version of issues; some have distinct online and print versions that feature different content; and many electronic journals are only online. For online resources, you will not have page numbers because very often the sources are websites, video projects, or other digital media projects that cannot be printed or paginated. You can often access electronic journals through Google and other non-library search engines, but they are also indexed by large databases like JSTOR and similar databases. Please note that for any source with a corporate or organizational author, you will use the same format, with the corporation or organization name taking the place of the author.
