  • Give author, article title (in quotation marks), newspaper/magazine name (italics) and date of issue.
  • If no author is credited, begin with article title in the note but newspaper/magazine name in the bibliography.
  • Omit any ‘The’ from the beginning of the newspaper name. If the city is not in name, add in round brackets.
  • If the article is in a separate section, add the name (no italics) after the title (see Rousseau example above).
  • Page references can be omitted from newspaper articles (they may be unreliable due to multiple editions of a single issue) but should be included when citing magazine articles.
  • If accessed online, treat as for print article and add access date and URL or DOI. If the article is a digital replica of a print edition (e.g., from Trove), page numbers can be added.
