About Citing Journal/Magazine Articles

Article in a print journal

In the bibliography, list the page range for the whole article.  In a note, list the specific page numbers of the information you used.

Article in an online journal

  • Include a DOI if the journal lists one.  A DOI is a permanent ID that, when appended to in the address bar of an Internet browser, will lead to the source.
  • If no DOI is available, list a URL.
  • Include an access date only if one is required by your discipline.

Article in a newspaper or popular magazine

Newspaper and magazine articles may be cited in running text ("As Sheryl Stolberg and Robert Pear noted in a New York Times article on February 27, 2010…"); they are commonly omitted from a reference list. If you consulted the article online, include a URL; include an access date only if your discipline requires one. If no author is identified, begin the citation with the article title.
