Newspapers

  • If newspapers are cited in text, they do not need to be cited in the corresponding bibliography [14.206]
  • Give section number or letter but omit page numbers for newspapers.
  • Identify the edition as if available: final edition, Midwest edition, national edition, etc.
  • For unsigned articles put the name of the paper first and then the headline.
  • Omit "The" at the beginning of newspaper titles.
  • Except for very well-known national newspapers, add the city to the beginning of the title. State abbreviation may be added in parenthesis. Odd cases may call for special treatment.
  • For letters, give the author and use "letter to the editor" rather than a headline.

Citing in text – bibliography entry would not be needed.
