Q. When I am citing a periodical that does not provide the page number, but does provide the volume and issue, is it necessary to cite the issue number (e.g., Hameed 2009, 3:1)? Or how should this be cited?
A. Since the issue number (or month) will appear in the reference list citation, “Hameed 2009” is sufficient in the text citation.
