Turabian Citation Style Guide 9th Edition: D. Magazine Article

About Citing Books

For each type of source in this guide, the general form and specific examples will be provided for the Notes-Bibliography style options of Turabian.

This information and several of the examples were drawn from A Manual for Writers of Research Papers, Theses, and Dissertations (9th Edition). Numbers in parentheses refer to specific pages in the manual.

For further information, please ask your instructor or refer to the Turabian manual.

Magazine Article

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.
