4 Citing Online Journals, Magazines, and Newspapers Online journals, magazines, and newspapers are easy to access in databases. A database is merely a collection of electronic versions of journals, magazines, and newspapers. In addition to easy access, many databases (though not all) have citation generators which will create your Works Cited entries for you. However, be aware that sometimes these Works Cited entries have a few flaws in terms of spacing, hanging indents, and capitalization. If you arent sure how to use databases or the citation generators, click here.click here. A Works Cited entry for an online journal, magazine, or newspaper article generally requires the following information: Last Name, First Name Middle Initial of Author Title of Article in quotation marks Name of Journal, Magazine, or Newspaper italicized Volume.Issue (Date of publication) Pages Name of Database italicized Date you found article Copyright 2011 by Angela M.

5 Journals Versus Magazines Source for image: iol.utexas.edu Copyright 2011 by Angela M. Gulick, Parkland College JournalsMagazines Journal articles generally have been peer reviewed. This means that the articles have been studied by a panel of professionals in a particular field to assure the accuracy and credibility of the information presented. Magazine articles generally have received some screening but often are not written by experts in the field. Rather, many magazine articles are written by freelance or staff writers who research and write about a wide variety of topics. Journal articles are usually longer and more complex than magazines that are read for everyday fun. Magazine articles generally cover just a few pages or even fewer and are written at roughly a tenth to twelfth grade reading level, so the articles arent overly complicated. Journal articles generally have few pictures or other images unless the graphics are part of a particular article (such as a pie chart or bar graph showing statistical information). Magazines generally have lots of colorful graphics and are printed on glossy paper. Journals usually have little advertising unless the advertisements are directly related to the field, such as advertisements for professional conferences and other scholarly books and publications. Magazines generally have a lot of different advertisements, usually in relation to the readership of the magazine such as ads for womens clothing, makeup, and jewelry targeted for readers of fashion magazines
