I received the feedback below from a professor. I have two questions: 1) When citing an article, should the link that appears after "retrieved from" take the reader to the article?
2) When posting a pdf link to an article on the discussion board, what could I do differently to ensure it does not take readers to the Brenau Sign-in page even if it says pdf link?
Message from professor:
The URL you provided on Week 4 Article Review does not take the reader to the journal or the article. It takes the reader to the Brenau Sign-in page.
Please contact the Brenau Library for support and post this correction for class members.

The first part is correct: authors, year, article title.
You're missing the journal name, volume, issue, pages, and journal homepage URL (needed since we don't have a DOI).
You can pull most of this information from the bottom pf the actual article's pages, or you can pull it from the database abstract/details page https://search-proquest-com.ezproxy.brenau.edu:2040/docview/1865491948/abstract/1FCF1E400AAF4738PQ/1?accountid=9708. For the journal homepage, you just google "science educator" journal and it will pop up. https://www.nsela.org/science-educator-journal-
The correct citation is:
Glennie, E. J., Charles, K. J., & Rice, O. N. (2017). Teacher logs: A tool for gaining a comprehensive understanding of classroom practices. Science Educator, (25)2. 88-96. Retrieved from https://www.nsela.org/science-educator-journal-
