Writing an essay often involves citing sources of information you used in your article. Sources may include books, encyclopedias, websites and newspapers. When citing information or facts from a newspaper article, refer to the newspaper by name in the citation. Both the Modern Language Association (MLA) style and the American Psychological Association (APA) style require similar formats when you use a newspaper name in an essay.
Capitalize the first word and all other important words (more than three letters long) of the newspaper name in the essay.
Type the newspaper name in italics.
Follow the newspaper name by a comma or a period.
