Citation Styles: A Brief Guide to APA, MLA and Turabian

Citing Magazine Articles

MAGAZINE ARTICLES

The basic format for citing a magazine article is similar to the journal format. Required information includes author’s name, article title, name of the magazine, date of issue, and inclusive page numbers. Some magazines may include volume numbers. None of the three styles require those for magazines citations. Turabian recommends against citing page numbers for magazine articles since article pagination is often not continuous.

 

MAGAZINE ARTICLE – ONE AUTHOR

The example is based on an article published in the magazine Food Talk. The article, “Blue Green Algae – It’s a Main Course, It’s a Shampoo, It’s a Floor Wax – What Is This Stuff Anyway? was written by author Mack Roe Biotek and was published in the September 28, 1992, issue of the magazine on pages 27-32.

APA

Biotek, M.R. (1992, September 28). Blue green algae – It’s a main course, it’s a shampoo, it’s a floor wax – What is this stuff anyway? Food Talk, 27-32.

MAGAZINE ARTICLE FROM ONLINE FULL-TEXT DATABASE

The example is an article published by author Almonda Chickpea in the magazine Nutrition Around Us entitled “Original Tofu Recipes With a Bit of a Kick.” The article appeared on pages 43-52 of the April 15, 2008, issue of the magazine. It was retrieved from the online database FoodSearch Online on August 18, 2008. The magazine is not available on the Internet and the article has not been assigned a DOI. Note: APA advises that it is generally not necessary to provide retrieval information for journal articles pulled from databases, since coverage in the database might change. When no DOI or website is available, the citation will take the format of the print journal article.
