Answer

How you cite an article in APA style will depend on whether it is from an academic journal, magazine, or newspaper and whether it was found in print or online.  Below are examples of each type of citation.  For online articles you need to include the DOI at the end of the citation (see below).  If the DOI is not available, you will use the URL for the publication's website.
