Basic rules

The principles of citing a newspaper article with APA (7th edition) in a list of references are slightly different from the rules of referencing a journal article.

For citing a newspaper article, include the following elements in the bibliographic reference: last names and initials of the authors, article title, newspaper title, year and date of the issue, issue volume and number (if available), and pages used.

For a newspaper article retrieved online, include the URL in the reference.
