3. Journal Articles
Basic format
3.1 Journal articles are another common source used by history students in their essays. The basic format for listing a journal article in your bibliography is as follows:

author’s last name, author’s first name. ‘title of article’. title of journal. volume number, issue number (date of publication).

Journal articles by a single author
3.2 Here are some examples for journal articles by a single author:
Clague, Monique. ‘Vision and myopia in the new politics of André Tardieu’. French Historical Studies. vol. 8, no. 1 (Spring 1973).
Herrmann, David G. ‘The paralysis of Italian strategy in the Italian-Turkish War, 1911-1912’. English Historical Review. vol. CIV, no. 411 (April 1989).
Journal articles by more than one author
3.3 For journal articles with more than one author, list all the authors in the order that their names appear on the article. The first author’s name should be given as ‘last name, first name’ but all other authors should be given as ‘first name last name’.
Jones, G.G. and R.C.B. Trebilcock. ‘Russian industry and British business, 1910-1930: Oil and armaments’. Journal of European Economic History. vol. 11 (1982).
3.4 Individual items from daily papers are not usually listed separately in the bibliography. Instead, give the name of the paper, its place of publication and the run of dates for which it was consulted.
The Times (London), December 1931-January 1932.

The West Australian (Perth), 1999-2003.
Book reviews
4.4 Books reviews generally appear as articles in scholarly journals and newspapers. They should be referenced in your bibliography by the author of the review, not the author of the book being reviewed.
Coleman, Heather. Review of Sheila Fitzpatrick, Everyday Stalinism. Ordinary Life in Extraordinary Times: Soviet Russia in the 1930s (New York: Oxford University Press, 1999). In Canadian Journal of History, vol. 36 (2001).
