Turabian Citation Style Guide 9th Edition: F. Newspaper Article
This guide will help you cite sources in the Turabian/Chicago Style.
For each type of source in this guide, the general form and specific examples will be provided for both the Notes-Bibliography and the Author-Date 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.
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) (p. 186).
For Author-Date style, omit page numbers in the parenthetical citation and for the reference list, follow the basic format used in citing magazine articles. Also, if possible, include the newspaper edition for clarification purposes (pp. 250-1).
Notes-Bibliography Style (pp. 186-187):
Note Number. Author First Name/Initial Author Last Name, "Title of Article: Subtitle of Article," NewspaperTitle, Date of Publication.
Bibliographic Entry (necessary if citation is critical to your argument or frequently cited in your paper):
