Magazine articles are cited like journal articles except for the date and page number information. For magazine articles, only include the date of the publication (even if the issue has a volume and issue number) and do not enclose the information in parentheses. You may also omit the inclusive page numbers of the article in the bibliographic entry because magazine articles often span many pages due to extra material like advertisements. If the page numbers are included, precede the numbers with a comma rather than a colon (17.3).
Note: Please be mindful of assignment requirements and check them carefully. Most academic assignments do not allow for the use of magazine articles. If your professor asks for scholarly sources, you want to avoid magazines and look for scholarly journals instead.
Helpful Tip: In One SEARCH use the limiters on the left side of your results screen to limit down to Scholarly journals only.
