APA 6th Edition Citation Examples: Volume and Issue Numbers

Magazine and journal volume and issue number formatting

APA does not use "Volume", "Vol.", "v.", "Issue" or related terms. Use italics for the volume number.

12(4)

12 is the volume number (in italics) and 4 is the issue number.

If each issue of a journal begins on page 1, give the issue number in parentheses immediately after the volume number, as above.
