how to write the citation for electronic articles

electronic articles such as new york times articles regarding APA style guidance, it is suggested that the full citation in the end should be with the full date of the article such as: Brody, J. E. (2007, December 11 ). Mental reserves keep brain agile. The New York Times. Retrieved from however, they didn’t mention how the quota or the citation inside the text should be like and when i use EndNote , the full date appear also for example (Twin, 2009, November 30). is that right or should it be only the year and author such as the journal articles i will appreciate it if anyone share any idea thank you

I assume you are achieving this by entering the whole of the publication date into into the year field? 

To avoid getting that info in the citation, you would have to split the month/date info into the  “issue date” field in the newspaper reference type. 

That also appears to be how the bibliography template for Newspaper is constructed in APA 6th, so you shouldn’t have to adjust anything there to get the output you require.

thank you so much for ur fast reply

do u have any idea what is correct based on APA style, is it to write (Twin, 2009, November 30) or
(Twin, 2009) for such articles.

Thanks again :slight_smile:

Not without an APA manual to hand, but I suspect that just the year would be the norm based on what I see if the output style. 

You may have already seen this good tutorial as it is an endnote one “.create reference type for web based articles” (APA 5th) tI may not answer your question .
