Q. I am citing a newspaper article. What should I put for page number?

Answer

Traditionally print newspapers are usually numbered similar to a book, with page numbers located either in the top or bottom corner of the page. Larger newspapers are usually divided into sections, which are then have there own page numbering - A1, A2, A3 ... B1, B2, B3 ...

 

If you are retrieving this article from an online database, the page number is usually listed in the summary of the article either near its beginning or end - as shown in the image below. It's important that if there is a section you include it with the page number, since this will make finding the article easier to locate.
