NOTES:

(1) ALA only capitalizes the first word of the title and the first word of the subtitle--unless there is a proper noun in the title.

(2) Turabian does not require inclusive page numbers for magazine articles in bibliography references if the pages run throughout different sections of the magazine.

(3) When a magazine is a weekly or a monthly, Turabian prefers that you use the date, even if there is a volume and issue number available.

(4) With newspapers, APA requires that you list every page in the article; MLA allows the plus sign to indicate additional pages in an article, for example: A1+. Turabian typically does not require that you include newspaper articles in a bibliography. Use them only if they are significant; otherwise refer to them internally. Newspaper page numbers are not required in Turabian.
