HOW TO CITE A MAGAZINE ARTICLE FROM A WEBSITE

Author, A. (Year, Month Day). Title of article in sentence case. Title of Magazine in Mixed Case and Italics. Retrieved from http://www.magazine.com

Formatted example:

There are two options for citing this source in-text:

1) Last names of author(s), date of publication, and page number(s) are placed in brackets at the end of the sentence. If there are no page numbers, refer to the paragraph number or heading within the text:

(Mann, 2014, para. 5).

2) Alternatively, the citation may be integrated into the sentence with a signal phrase and narrative:

Mann (2014) described how this tipping point is calculated using a model called "Earth's 'equilibrium climate sensitivity'" (para. 2).
