This guidance applies whether you found the document in print or online.
author, | 'title' | (year) | journal abbreviation | first page of article
Footnote and bibliography:

To pinpoint, follow the citation with a comma and the page number. To pinpoint several pages, insert a dash between the page numbers:
e.g. United Nations General Assembly (UNGA), ‘Report of the Ad Hoc Committee’ (1979) UNYB 1146, 147
The first time you reference the document, give the name of the author in full, e.g. United Nations General Assembly (UNGA). After that, it can be given in abbreviated form, e.g. UNGA.
Enclose the title in 'single quotation marks'.
Give the first letter of all major words a capital letter. Minor words (e.g. 'for', 'and', 'or', 'the') should not be capitalized, unless they begin a title or a subtitle.
If an article has a title and a subtitle that are not separated by punctuation, insert a colon : between them.
The year is always given in (round brackets).
