An Audio or Video Podcast Article Begins with the Host's Last Name and Initials ("John Smith" or "John P. Smith") In most cases, the host will have a role in creating the content found within the podcast including interviews, guests, and topics.

What is the correct format for a newspaper article?

A newspaper article's basic structure contains the author's name (if available), the title, the name of the newspaper, the date of publication, and the section and page numbers where the story is published. Some articles may have a byline which includes another person's name along with the first person's name. This would be especially common if one was writing a column for another publication and wanted to give credit to both people.

The title of the article should be short and descriptive enough to stand alone as an interesting topic. It should also include the word "article" or some form of this word to indicate that it is not a book report or other type of assignment. The title should help readers decide what kind of content they will find in the article. For example, an article on "how my cat likes me" would be better titled "A Brief History of Feline Behaviorism" so that readers know exactly what they will find inside.

The author's name is usually included at the end of the article after a comma. If there is more than one author, each one is separated by a comma. A parenthetical note can be used to explain something about the author(s) such as a nickname or their job role. These notes are enclosed in parentheses and followed by a colon.

An old newspaper article is cited in much the same way as any other piece of writing. The only difference is that instead of giving the date on which you read the article, you must give the date on which it was published.

If the article is from several years ago, then you should also include the year in which it was published. For example, if the article was published in 2005 and you refer to it again in 2010, then you should say "old newspaper article by First Name, Last Name about their life story" or some similar phrase.

If the work is part of a series, insert et al. after the word "et" and add the number 1 through 5 indicating each new item in the series. For example, John Doe, University of California, San Francisco, CA, USA. Dissertation (Ph. D.). If there is no date attached to the dissertation or thesis, use the following format: John Doe, Ph. D.
