APA (American Psychological Association) citation style is the most frequently used citation style for studies in Education. It follows the basic format of author last name, author first initial, year in brackets, article title, journal title italicized, volume italicized, number or issue in brackets, page range, and if you viewed this electronically you will need to include a 'Retrieved from' url which may include a DOI (digital object identifier).
Here is an example:
Campbell, C. (2017). Developing teachers’ professional learning: Canadian evidence and experiences in a world of educational improvement. Canadian Journal of Education, 40(2), 1-33. Retrieved from http://search.proquest.com.ezproxy.library.uvic.ca/docview/1922374798?accountid=14846
