APA Style (Formatting Papers)

Fixing the URL at the end of a reference (from the CITE feature)

If the CITE feature in CINAHL gives you a URL like this one

https://doi-org.wv-o-ursus-proxy01.ursus.maine.edu/10.1186/s13018-021-02256-1

  1. Take everything after the ".edu"
  2. Add "https://doi.org/" in front of it.

Then your DOI should look like this

https://doi.org/10.1186/s13018-021-02256-1

Add it to the end of your APA reference.  This sample APA reference should look like this
