You should use the below format in your bibliography when creating a reference for a journal article source:

AUTHOR, Year. Title of article. Title of Journal (in italics). Volume (Issue number in brackets) Pages where article starts and ends (p. or pp.)

Here is an example: 

  • BOLT, D., 2004. Disability and the Rhetoric of Inclusive Higher Education. Journal of Further and Higher Education. 28 (4), pp. 353-358.

If it is a Journal article (online) please use the below example as a guide: 

GUO, H. and ZHI, C., 2014. Strategic flexibility and SME performance in an emerging economy: A contingency perspective. Journal of Organizational Change Management [online]. 27 (2), pp. 273-298. Available from: [Accessed 8 July 2014].

If it is a Journal article (with more than three authors) you should include all the authors in your bibliography following the example below. 

  • CLARK, J., PATTERN, D., HICKS, W. and OWEN, J., 2012. Differentiation in the classroom: an approach to teaching and learning. Journal of Inclusive Education. 20 (4), pp. 151-155.

For your in-text citation just give the name of the first author then ‘et al.’ 'Et al.’ means ‘and others’. For example Smith et al. (2010).
