Article in a Newspaper
Cite a newspaper article as you would a magazine article, but note the different pagination in a newspaper. If there is more than one edition available for that date (as in an early and late edition of a newspaper), identify the edition after the newspaper title.

24 May 2007, p. LZ01.
Krugman, Andrew. “Fear of Eating.”
New York Times,

If the newspaper is a less well-known or local publication, include the city name in brackets after the
title of the newspaper.

An Article in a Scholarly Journal
A scholarly journal can be thought of as a container, as are collections of short stories or poems, a
television series, or even a website. A container can be thought of as anything that is a part of a
larger body of works. In this case, cite the author and title of article as you normally would. Then, put
the title of the journal in italics. Include the volume number (“vol.”) and issue number (“no.”) when
possible, separated by commas. Finally, add the year and page numbers.
Author(s). “Title of Article.”
