Output Style for Articles from E-Journals


I am a librarian at a small private college in Germany. I am supposed to create an Output Style that fits our standards.

Our standards say, that the students have to differ between regular Journal Articles and E-Journal Articles. If it’s a print Journal, they are supposed to name the pages, if it’s an E-Journal they are supposed to give the DOI or URL instead.

I am editing the APA 6th ed. Output Style and it says

Author. (Year). Title. Journal|, Volume|(Issue)|, S. Pages|.

How do I have to edit this, to get what I need?

Thank you in advance and please forgive me any grammar or spelling mistakes, English is not my first language.




EndNote contains different reference types that can be used for this purpose. 

Regular print Journal articles can be entered using the “Journal Article” reference type.

E-Jourals should be entered using the “Electronic Article” reference type, which already has this as it’s definition in the APA format included in EndNote:

Author. (Year). Title|. [Reviewed Item]|. Periodical Title, Volume|(Issue)|, Pages|.| Retrieved from Website Title website: |URL| doi:DOI
