Ageing/Gerontology: Journal Articles

Why Use Journals?

  • Articles are more up-to-date than books
  • They offer greater detail and insight into research
  • Peer-reviewed articles are considered more reliable

Manage Your References

If you're working with lots of articles you may find EndNote, EndNote Online or Mendeley helpful. You can organise your references and insert them into your write-up - automatically formatted into the right reference style.

Understanding An Article Reference

A correctly formatted reference will tell you exactly where to find the full article:
