by Steve Jung, rev./exp. 05/24 by Sharon Ralston

Some Basics - Turabian 9th ed - 17.2

Basics of the Citation:
  1. Author's names as they appear at the head of the article. First author is inverted (last name first) on reference page.
  2. Article title and subtitles, enclosed in quotation marks. Use headline-style for the title.
  3. Journal title in italics and in headline-style. Give the title exactly as it appears on title page or the website.
  4. Issue information: volume follows title without punctuation and is not italicized. Use arabic numerals. If there is an issue number, then put a comma and space after volume number, and then "no." before the issue number. ** if there are only issue numbers, then skip the place for the volume number.
  5. Date of publication is placed within parenthesis. This is either season and year or month and year. No punctuation is placed between items. ** If the article has been accepted, but not yet published, replace the date with "forthcoming".
  6. Page numbers - in the citation cite the specific page/s. In the reference page, give the inclusive range of pages.
If the article was found online:
  • If there is a printed URL, include that after the citation.
  • If there is a DOI, use that instead of the URL.
  • If the article was found in a database, cite the database instead of the URL or DOI.
