Reading a Journal Article Citation

Parts Of A Citation:

When you were search for articles in a database, or when you check a bibliography of list of references from an article or a book, you see many citations to articles, similar to this one:

To cite an article correctly, and to find an article from a citation in another article of source, it is important to understand the information provided in a citation.  Below, I use the citation above, to show what information each part of the citation is giving you:
