  • While a specific page number may be cited in a footnote, the inclusive page numbers of an article may be omitted in bibliographies since they are often widely separated by extraneous material. When page numbers are included, a comma rather than a colon separates them from the date of issue.
  • Weekly or monthly magazines, even if numbered by volume and issue, are usually cited by date only.

MORE DETAILS

  • Page numbers may usually be omitted because a newspaper's issue on any particular day may include several editions. If known, it is useful to add the edition.
  • If the name of the newspaper starts with the word "the", omit the word (the) in the citation for both notes and bibliography. 
  • News services, such as the Associated Press or the United Press International, are capitalized in citations, but not italicized.
  • The names of news services often appear in the author position of the citation (when no author is listed).
  • If no author or news service name is given, the title of the newspaper stands in place of the author.
