Most book reviews are published in periodicals such as journals, newspapers, and magazines. Cite these reviews as you would an article in the corresponding source type. The title of the review should appear in sentence case (i.e. only capitalize the first word and any proper nouns), while the title of the periodical should appear in title case (i.e. capitalize each word) (p. 39, "Periodicals: Basic Format," 1). If the review is untitled, provide a descriptive title and do not wrap it in quotes as per APA style (see pg. 38, "On-Line Sources"). If you provide the DOI for the book review, you do not need to provide the URL (see p. 39, "Periodicals: Examples," 3). For URLs, provide the link to the publisher's website whenever possible, not the link to the library database as per APA style (see pg. 38, "On-Line Sources"). If your only option is to provide the link to the database, provide the name of the database in place of the URL (see p. 40, "U.S. Government Documents: Example," 1). IEEE recommends abbreviating periodical titles when appropriate. For a list of common abbreviations see IEEE p. 40-52.
