Additional power sockets in Taylor Library

ShinySocketToMeGood news everyone – Taylor Library is to have over 200 additional power sockets installed over the coming weeks, meaning almost every seat where laptops are permitted will have an outlet by the time term starts in September.  There will inevitably be some disruption as the work is carried out but we will of course be open for business as usual. Apologies for any inconvenience the works
may cause.

OSCOLA – citing newspaper articles

OSCOLA final

In this post, we highlight those general rules of OSCOLA referencing style that you need to adhere to when you cite newspaper articles in your essay or dissertation.

The elements of the citation are as follows:

  • Give the name of the author
  • Then, the title of the article
  • The name of the newspaper (in Italics)
  • (the city of publication and the date) – in brackets
  • The page number (if it is known) follows the brackets
  • Web address (if the article published online only, and there is no page number available).

Examples

Jane Croft, ‘Daughter loses out to animal charities over mother’s will: Supreme Court ruling’ Financial Times (London, 16 March 2017) 3

Dan Sabbagh, ‘Cambridge Analytica predecessor had access to secret MoD information’ The Guardian (London, 29 March 2018) <https://www.theguardian.com/uk-news/2018/mar/29/cambridge-analytica-predecessor-had-access-to-secret-mod-information> accessed 30 March 2018

Tip!

  • Be careful, some newspapers have the definite article, ‘The’ in their title, others do not. Make sure that you use the correct name of the newspaper.
  • If your reference is to an editorial, cite the author as ‘Editorial’.
