Periodical Examples

Journal Articles

Journal Articles citation entries contain the authors name, the title of the article, the volume number (usually how many years the journal has been published for), and issue number (however the issue number for the year), the publication date (year only), and page number.

For a footnote/endnote the page number references where a specific citation came from, and for a bibliographic entry the page number refers to which pages the whole article occupies in the journal in question.

If a journal is referenced from an online database the online retrieval information is supposed to be given, but in undergrad practice this rule is usually not followed. Do not include online access information unless you are specifically asked to do so by your professor.

Magazines

Dates:
This information is not parenthesized for magazine titles. Magazine are only identified by date, even if issue/ volume number  is given this information should not be included in footnotes/endnotes or bibliographic information.

Regular Features:
Regular department titles are capitalized headline-style but not put in quotation marks.

Page Numbers:
This is only given for footnotes/ endnotes. No page number is given for bibliographic entries of magazines as the span of the whole article often includes many extraneous pages of advertising.

Online Magazines

Notes and bibliographic entries for online magazines should be as similar as possible to the examples for printed magazines. The only additional details required are the URL and access date.

“This Week” is in quotations and capitalized below because it is the name of a feature instead of an article title.

Newspapers

According to Chicago Style newspapers need to be cited in notes but not included in biographies. However professors views on the matter differ, so it’s best to ask.

Names of Newspapers:
Do not include ``The`` if it is the first word in a newspapers title. A city name should be added along with the newspaper title, if the newspaper is not well-known. If necessary province/state and country names can accompany a city’s name for identification purposes.

News Services:
News services, such as the Canadian Press, are capitalized not italicized.

Headlines:
Chicago style recommends capitalizing every word in newspaper titles as this prevents inconsistencies between newspapers which use capitalize the first letter of most words and newspapers that capitalize every letter in a title.

Page Numbers:
Not included because newspapers are usually printed in multiple editions.
