Almost all online journals

Almost all online journals have a printed equivalent. When this is the case reference it as the print version. This is partly because URLs for online articles are usually very long, and change with time; and partly because not everyone will be able to access the online journal in the same way that you did.

Details at https://www.lib.uts.edu.au/help/referencing/harvard-uts-referencing-guide/journal-article. Use the instructions under Print or Online.

If your journal article does not have a printed equivalent, or if the online version is significantly different from the print version, use the Online journal article format instructions.
