To write the name of a journal or magazine in the body of your paper:

  • The title of the journal should be in italics - Example: Journal of the American Medical Association
  • Capitalize all the major words.

To write the the name of an article title in the body of your paper:

  • "The title of the article should be in quotation marks" - Example: "Tiger Woman on Wall Street"
  • Capitalize all the major words.


The article "Tiger Woman on Wall Street" in the Journal of the American Medical Association was very informative.

Visit the APA Help guide for more examples.

  6. The answer given was for the body of your paper.
    Here's how to cite an article both on the References page and in-text:
    Author Last Name, First & Middle Initials. (Date). Title of article: Subtitle of article. Title of Source, Volume(Issue), Page numbers. Retrieved from...

    Paraphrase: (Author Last Name, Year).
    Quotation: (Author Last Name, Year, p. Page Number).
