Hello, could you tell me if this reference is correct for journal reference thanks. Isbell, Rebecca, Sobol,Joseph, Lindauer, Liane,& Lourance, April.(2004. The Effects of Storytelling and Story Reading on The Oral Language Complexity and Story Comprehension of Young Children. Early Childhood Education Journal, Vol. 32, No. 3 Thanks, There was no page number
Scroll down to where it says Three to Six Authors and you can see a good example there.
It looks as if you are including last and first names, but you should use last names and then just initials.
Also the closing parenthesis after 2004 is missing.
Make sure that the title of the magazine itself (not the article) is in italics on the page you turn in.
Please re-post if you need more feedback.
