Proper Bibliographic Reference Format:

  • Bibliographic references are double-spaced and indented half an inch after the first line.  
  • If there is no author, the article title comes first.  
  • Use italics and "headline-style" capitalization.  
  • Unlike journals and magazines, precede page numbers for newspaper articles with p. (one page) or pp. (more than one page).  
  • Some large newspapers are divided into sections labeled A, B, etc. If this is the case, the letter must be included to aid retrieval.  
  • If an article appears on discontinuous pages, give all page numbers, and separate the numbers with a comma (e.g., pp. B1, B3, B5-B7).
