I want to use a quote from an abstract for which the full text article is unavailable.  What do I do about page numbers for my quote?

Hi Julia,

You can use the page number that applies to the abstract, usually that would the first page of the article. I would also recommend using a quote from the actual article instead of the abstract.

Let us know if you need more information.
