Capitalization: For all sources other than periodicals (that is: newspapers, magazines, and scholarly journals), capitalize the first word of the title and subtitle and proper nouns only. Do not capitalize the rest (see example below).

All major words in periodical titles should be capitalized (for example, Psychology Today, Journal of Health Care for the Poor and Underserved.)

Italics: Titles are italicized for the following items:

  • Books
  • E-Books
  • Periodicals
  • Web sites
  • Dissertations/theses
  • Reports/technical papers
  • Works of art
Source Example

Journal article title

Freud's Vienna revisited.

Book title

Student cheating and plagiarism in the Internet era: A wake-up call.
