Guidance from Cite Them Right 

Newspaper articles

Cite Them Right Online provides a few different ways to reference newspaper articles, including

  • Online Newspapers
  • Letters, sections and editorials
  • Regional newspapers 

According to the basic Cite Them Right newspaper guidelines a simple newspaper reference from a nationally syndicated source with a named author accessed online would look like this:

Conboye, J. (2019) 'UK awards First Group and Trenitalia West Coast rail franchise', Financial Times, 14 August. Available at: https://www.ft.com/content/c29d5e98-be63-11e9-89e2-41e555e96722 (Accessed 14 August 2019).

Magazines and trade journal articles

The guidelines for referencing a magazine or trade journal are similar to those for referencing a journal article. A simple reference for a magazine with a print equivalent would look contain issue information, rather than a URL, even if it was accessed online. For instance:

Regan, M. (2019) 'The chaos cycle', Bloomberg Businessweek, 4625, pp. 24-26.
