Dating newspaper articles
This is partly because of the number of source types it covers.
But it’s also because there are two versions: author-date citations (common in the sciences) and footnote citations (common in the humanities).
If quoting the print version of an article, you should also give page numbers: Lederer (2016, 23) reports that Ban Ki-moon valued “face-to-face meetings” with world leaders to discuss fighting climate change.
For online articles, no page numbers are required (although you can give a paragraph number if you need to be specific).
The ’s online guide says that “Newspaper and magazine articles may be cited in running text…
and they are commonly omitted from a reference list.” This means that you may be able to simply mention a newspaper article in your work: As Edith Lederer notes in a article published December 31, 206, Ban Ki-moon valued meeting with world leaders as part of the fight against climate change.
The rules for in-text citations of newspaper articles are the same as for other sources: i.e., give the author’s name and year of publication in parentheses: Ban Ki-moon valued meeting world leaders to discuss climate change (Lederer, 2016).
The access date may be included immediately prior to the DOI or URL and, if included, should be separated by commas in notes or periods in bibliographical entries.The issue number (if it is given) is separated from the volume number with a comma and is preceded by “no.” The year appears in parenthesis after the volume number (or issue number if given).The year may be preceded by a specific date, month, or season if given. For notes, page number(s) refer only to the cited material; the bibliography includes the first and last pages of the article.Most newspaper articles will have a named author, though, so remember to check carefully. Chicago referencing doesn’t include page numbers in the reference list, even for print articles.In the reference list, newspaper articles should be listed using the following format: Surname, First Name. This is because pagination can differ in different editions of the same newspaper. If no author name is available, use the title instead.
For online works, retrieval information and the date of access are also included.
