Style notes for this reference type
- If the authorship of the newspaper article is evident, follow the procedures described for magazines.
- In the reference list the date follows the newspaper's name.
- Newspaper names are italicised. Use maximal capitalisation - capitalise the first and all major words of the publication's name. Give the publication's name in full.
- Article titles are contained within single quotation marks and are not italicised. Use minimal capitalisation - capitalise only the first word of the article title and any proper nouns. Include both article title and subtitle regardless of length e.g. 'Still moving: between cinema and photography'.
- There is no comma or full-stop between the author's name and year of publication. Commas are used to separate all other elements. The reference entry finishes with a full-stop.
- Include page numbers at the end of the reference entry. If an article continues towards the end of the publication provide both sets of page numbers e.g. pp. 14-15, 32.
