Chicago Style (Author/Date)

Journal vs. Magazines

In this guide, “journal” is used for scholarly or professional periodicals (e.g. American Journal of Political Science, or The Journal of Human Rights).  And, “magazine” is used for weekly or monthly periodicals that are popular and for general audiences.  (e.g.  Newsweek, Time, or The Atlantic)

Journal Article (Print and Online)

Citations of journals include the volume and issues number.  List the page range for the whole article in the reference list.

Last name, First name.  Publication year.  “Article title.”  Journal title Volume number (Issue number): Page range.

Cite in text: (Last name Publication year, page number)

For citing journals from the online database, include a DOI (Digital Object Identifier) or a URL at the end.  Access dates are not required to cite articles.  If no page number is available, include a section title, chapter or paragraph number.

Last name, First name.  Publication year.  “Article title.”  Journal title Volume number (Issue number): Page range.  DOI (or URL).

Cite in text: (Last name Publication year, page number)

Newspapers and Magazines (Print and Online)

It is usually sufficient to cite newspapers and magazine articles (e.g. New York Times, Newsweek, The Atlantic) in text, and they are omitted from the reference list.  However, a reference list entry is needed, follow the format of the journal article.  But, note that the publication year is separated from the month and day.

Last name, First name.  Publication year.  “Article title.”  Newspaper/Magazine title, Month Day, Year, Page range.

Cite in text: (Last name Publication year, Cited page)

For electronic articles, include URL at the end.  Include paragraph number if no page number is available.

Last name, First name.  Publication year.  “Article title.”  Newspaper/Magazine title, Month Day, Year.  URL

Cite in text: (Last name Publication year, Cited paragraph)
