Newspaper and Magazine

Newspapers and magazines are released daily, weekly or monthly, so you must indicate the day and/ or month of publication in your reference. Thus, referencing a newspaper or magazine article is similar to referencing a journal article, but with the volume and issue numbers replaced by the date of publication.

  • If you are looking at a newspaper or magazine on a free website, and it has no page numbers, replace the page range with the viewed date and URL.
  • If you access a newspaper or magazine article from a library database that has no page numbers, use these rules.
  • If the magazine has a month or a season instead of an issue date, replace the issue date with the month or season.
  • If the article comes from a special section that has its own page numbering, you need to specify the section (in brackets) after the name of the newspaper or magazine.

Brochures, pamphlets and zines

Press Release

Media and press releases are written by companies and organisations and submitted to the media in the hope of generating publicity. In Harvard UTS referencing they resemble the format for a newspaper, though without an article title. They can be referenced in both print and online forms.
