Do you italicize newspaper headlines?

Italicize the titles of stand-alone published works (e.g., books, journals, newspapers, albums, or movies). If you answered yes, the title should be emphasized. A newspaper title, for example, should be emphasized (e.g., The Washington Post). An album title should not be emphasized (e.g., Beatles '66 and '67).

The web is full of sites that will help you create custom headlines for your work. For example, one site allows you to enter a word or phrase and then generates a number of different headlines using synonyms and antonyms for it. Another site lets you input text and then produces a list of words that can each act as a headline for your work.

Newspaper headlines are always written in boldface type. However, this is not true of all publications. Album covers often feature just the title in boldface type; movie posters sometimes do too. Whether or not a publication's headlines are also in boldface depends on whether or not they are considered essential information for someone who might want to read them. For example, Sports Illustrated uses only boldface for its sports scores because this is all that non-sports readers need to know about their games.

When writing for a publication with a set style for headings, use the same format as any other element.

Do you italicize pamphlet titles?

Italicize the titles of independently published books in general. It is not necessary to do so for booklets that are bound with other works or that serve as covers for other publications. Such books are identified by quotation marks and/or italics.

The title of a pamphlet should be given equal weight with the body of the text. Therefore, it should be set in italics when used to distinguish it from the rest of the text.

Independently published books include those published by small presses and university presses. These books usually have shorter titles than larger publishers because they lack the space to describe their subjects in detail.

Booklets are generally short publications that contain information about a single topic covered by several pages. They are usually printed on one side of paper and often include tables and illustrations. Some booklets are bound together with other works, such as a magazine or journal, while others have their own cover.

The title of a booklet should be brief and give its entire content in one sentence. It should be set in italics to identify it as such.

Do you italize the name of the newspaper?

Full-text titles, such as books or newspapers, should be italicized. Short work titles, such as poems, essays, short tales, or chapters, should be surrounded by quotation marks. Both methods are used to distinguish the title from the text it precedes or follows.

In academic contexts, the name of a journal is often given in italics to indicate that it is a published version of an unpublished manuscript or treatise. Unpublished works may also be referred to by author's name only, without reference to a publisher. In general usage, however, the term "journal" does not need to be italicized.

The names of newspapers and magazines are usually italicized because they are always printed in small type and often serve as a catch-all category for publications dealing with related topics. However, there are exceptions; for example, The New York Times is not italicized even though it is a newspaper.

The name of a publication can be used as a noun or a verb. If used as a noun, the word "title" is attached to it: the magazine's title; the book's title. If used as a verb, the word "title" is omitted: Put title after movie; Can't stand his arrogance - he's a real title man.

Do you italicize the names of newspapers?

If the name of the book series is italicized, titles of books that are part of a larger body of work may be put in quotation marks. For example, "Moby Dick; Or, The White Whale" is an early 20th-century edition of a 19th-century novel.

In American English, newspaper names are usually not italicized, but they used to be. Before the 1960s, all but a few hundred of the daily and weekly newspapers in the United States were published in small towns with populations under 50,000. These small papers were called "dailies" because they were published every day except Sunday. They often had large typesets with many different styles of typeface for headlines, body text, and footnotes. At the time they were newpapers, and their editors tried to offer both local and national news coverage in each issue.

The dailies were owned by large printing companies that sold them to investors who wanted to get into publishing. Since these investors didn't want to run newspapers any more than necessary, they typically hired managers who already worked for other newspapers to run their dailies. Thus, most dailies had the same editor and assistant editor, for example, for their music and theater reviews.

Do you italicize news organizations?

Titles. In general, we italicize titles that can stand on their own. Other titles that we would italicize are as follows: Time, U.S. News & World Report, Crazyhorse, and Georgia Review are among the journals and publications. We would not italicize Gourmet or Vanity Fair.

Subheads. Subheads are titles that describe but do not necessarily separate parts of a story. Thus, they are usually not independent titles. However, because they help readers understand the context of an article, some journals allow for independent subheadings. We would therefore italicize them if other methods of separation were used (e.g., color, size, type).

News Organizations. Most newspapers include a label at the top of each page indicating the newspaper's name, whether it is a daily or weekly edition, and its city of publication. These labels are in smaller type than the rest of the article and are usually set off from the main text with bullets or numbers. They are also often colored red to indicate they are headlines.

Because newspapers need to be read quickly, they typically only use words that will hold readers' attention. For this reason, many newspapers remove most punctuation from their stories. Although this method of writing makes reading newspapers easier, it can also lead to misunderstandings when reading between the lines or within descriptions or quotations.

Are speeches italicized or quoted?

If the source is self-contained and independent, italicize the title. Italicized book, play, film, magazines, databases, and online titles are italicized. If the source is part of a larger work, put the title in quotation marks. Articles, articles, chapters, poems, websites, songs, and speeches are all surrounded by quote marks.
