Helpful Hints

The headline does not need to be included, so the column can be cited with just the column title.

Although many newspaper headlines are capitalized like sentences, to remain consistent, it should be capitalized like other titles.

If a newspaper or magazine is online include a URL or DOI.

See 14.12 for more information on where to put line breaks for URLs or DOIs.
