  • “Give the URLs of the home page when the online version of the article is available by search to avoid nonworking URLs” (American Psychological Association, 2010, p. 201).
  • If you retrieved the article via the RRU Library's online databases, the standard APA Style approach to referencing resources without DOIs from a subscription-based database is to provide the database’s home page URL after the “Retrieved from” (American Psychological Association, 2010, p. 191). However, if you accessed a subscription-based database by going through the RRU Library’s website, rather than directly from that database’s home page, you had to log in to gain that access. The requirement to log in means providing the database’s home page URL isn’t a useful step for RRU students, and providing a direct URL to the resource via the Library's access isn’t useful to anyone outside the RRU community. Therefore, to simplify the process of creating references, students can provide either the home page URL for the database or name the database. This advice is based on the American Psychological Association's (2009) "DOI and URL Flowchart".
