Citation, Documentation of Sources
Q. I have been asked by my professor to cite in my reference list all newspaper articles that I have used. The articles do not have authors. They do include the date and all other information. What is the correct way to cite this? The manual does not go into detail on this area of citation.
A. Please see CMOS 14.199: “Unsigned newspaper articles or features are best dealt with in text or notes. But if a bibliography entry should be needed, the title of the newspaper stands in place of the author.” Example:
New York Times. “In Texas, Ad Heats Up Race for Governor.” July 30, 2002.
