About Citing Books

Newspaper Article

For newspaper articles, follow the basic citation pattern used for citing magazine articles. For Notes-Biblography style, newspaper articles are usually only cited in the notes and only included in the bibliography list if it is critical to your argument and/or frequently cited in your paper. Omit page numbers and try to clarify which edition you used (i.e. final edition, Wyoming edition, etc) (17.4).
