    Hi, I am looking for help referencing newspapers from the British Newspaper Archive website. I am aware I must include the BNA, The British Library Board and also the copyright statement that appears on the page you are on.

    Can anyone provide an example in Harvard referencing style.

    Thank you.

    I got this from cite them right online, via my university. Your university should also have access to this text. Sorry that the formatting is a bit screwy,,,

    Newspaper articles Just like journal articles, over recent years it has become clear that the referencing of newspaper articles, whether print or electronic, could be simplified. Students and tutors can access newspaper articles through password-protected institutional databases, but other readers may not have access to these. Therefore, as long as the newspaper reference provides enough bibliographic information for the article to be located, other elements no longer need to be included, for example.

    [Online] and database title. The reader would locate the newspaper article using the format/resource they can access and search themselves.

    Where the author (byline) of a newspaper article is identified, use the following citation order:

    Author/byline Year of publication (in round brackets) Title of article (in single quotation marks) Title of newspaper (in italics – capitalise first letter of each word in title, except for linking words such as and, of, the, for) Edition if required (in round brackets) Day and month Page reference (if available) Available at: URL (if required) (Accessed: date) OR doi (if available)

    Example: electronic or print article In-text citation Financial incentives were offered to graduates (Mansell and Bloom, 2012). Reference list Mansell, W. and Bloom, A. (2012) '£10,000 carrot to tempt physics experts', The Guardian, 20 June, p. 5. You try Help Surname, Initial. (Year of publication) 'Title of article', Title of Newspaper (Edition) Day and month, Page reference. Select your text and then click here to italiciseEmail Regional newspapers When referencing a regional newspaper, include the edition to distinguish it from others with the same title.

    Example: electronic or print regional newspaper article In-text citation House prices fell by 2.1 per cent last month (Old, 2012). Reference list Old, D. (2012) 'House price gloom', Evening Chronicle (Newcastle edn), 26 June, p. 25. You try Help Surname, Initial. (Year of publication) 'Title of article', Title of Newspaper (Edition) Day and month, Page reference. Select your text and then click here to italiciseEmail

    Where no author (byline) is given, use the following citation order: Title of newspaper (in italics – capitalise first letter of each word in title, except for linking words such as and, of, the, for) Year of publication (in round brackets) Title of article (in single quotation marks) Day and month Page reference

    Example: electronic or print article – no author In-text citation The article (The Times, 2012, p. 7) reported ... Reference list The Times (2012) 'Bank accounts', 14 June, p. 7. You try Help Title of Newspaper (Year of publication) 'Title of article', Day and month, Page reference. Select your text and then click here to italiciseEmail Online newspapers NB If you are specifically using the online version of a newspaper, which often varies from the print edition (for example no pagination), then you would reference it using the URL.

    Example: electronic article with no print equivalent or one that varies from the print edition In-text citation US-led air strikes appeared to be imminent (Roberts and Ackerman, 2013). Reference list Roberts, D. and Ackerman, S. (2013) 'US draft resolution allows Obama 90 days for military action against Syria', The Guardian, 4 September. Available at: http://www.theguardian.com/world/201...lution-90-days (Accessed: 9 September 2015). You try Help Surname, Initial. (Year of publication) 'Title of article', Title of Newspaper, Day month. Available at: URL (Accessed: date). Select your text and then click here to italiciseEmail NB If you are citing several articles published in the same year, use a, b, c and so on after the year, for example The Times (2013a).
