Notes-Bibliography Style

Magazine articles - general pattern

Magazine articles are cited much like journal articles, but with a few key differences, discussed in this section.

Print magazine

Note:

#. Author's First Name Last Name, "Title of Article: Subtitle," Title of Magazine, Date of Publication, page(s).

Bibliography:

Author's Last Name, First Name. "Title of Article: Subtitle." Title of Magazine, Date of Publication.

Online magazine

Bibliography:

Author's Last Name, First Name. "Title of Article: Subtitle." Title of Magazine, Date of Publication. URL or Database Name.

Regular column

If you cite a column or other part of a magazine that appears regularly, capitalise it headline style and do not enclose it in quotation marks.

Bibliography:

Tsui, Eugene. On Location Aboard. Green Places, February 2011. 

Date of publication

  • Cite magazines by date only, even if they have a volume or issue number.
  • Expand the names of months and years, even if they are abbreviated by the magazine (e.g., June 1997 rather than Jun97).
  • Do not enclose the date in brackets.

Bibliography:

Kerr, Elizabeth. "Portrait of the Artist as a Late Bloomer." Listener, May 7, 2016.

Quinn, Bradley. "Northen Lights: Astrid Krogh’s Luminescent Textile Design." Selvedge, November/December 2017. Art Full Text. 

Page numbers

  • If you cite a particular passage in a note, include its page number.
  • Don't include the page range of the magazine article in the bibliography entry (since magazine articles are often spread over many pages, with advertisements and other material in between).
  • Online magazines will usually not include page numbers to cite, so you can omit them.
