Here is a template to demonstrate how you can use the journal field in a @article entry:

@article{ ... ,
journal = {Name of the Journal},

In the above format, replace “Name of the Journal” with the actual name of the journal where the article was published. It is important to enter this information accurately to ensure correct citations.

For instance, the following is an example showcasing a correct use of the journal field:

title = {The Effects of XYZ on ABC},
author = {Smith, John},
journal = {Journal of ABC Research},
year = {2023},
