A journal's volume number describes how many issues of a journal have been published in a year. The journal issue number is provided if each issue starts the page numbering at 1 (American Psychological Association, 2010, p. 198). Please see "Got Volume?" from the APA Style Blog for instructions on how to create a reference when the volume number is missing.
