When you cite articles from the library databases you may be asked to include a permanent link. These are also called persistent links.
Permanent links are found in the library database when you click on the title of an article. Look for the permanent link button in the Tools menu on the right side of the page. They will also be included if you send an article from the library database to your e-mail. Permanent links will always have the words georgebrown.ca in the link address.
Here are a few tips for common questions about APA citations:
1. If no date is available use (n.d).
* For websites do not use copyright year at the bottom because this might not be when the information was written or last updated.
2. If you do not know the name of the author start your citation with the title of the article.
Should Toronto allow developers to block bike lanes and sidewalks?. (2020, January 9). The Toronto Star. https://login.gbcprx01.georgebrown.ca/login?url=https://search.ebscohost.com/login.aspx?direct=true&db=edscpi&AN=edscpi.A610891005&site=eds-live&scope=site
3. For in-text citations where there is no author use part of the title and add "quotation marks".
Example: ("Should Toronto allow", 2020)
4. All titles and subtitles should be written in sentence case. Only the first letter and proper nouns will have capital letters.
Example: Should Toronto build more bike lanes? City council to discuss.
5. All citations should be double spaced and the 2nd line indented.
