How to cite an online newspaper article in APA-style

Need Answer

Hello everybody,

I want to cite an abc news and a Guardian article and tried classifying them as internet documents in Citavi. As I need to write my paper in APA-Style, my citations should look like these examples

"Basic Format: Author. (Year, Month Day). Title of article. Title of Online Newspaper, pages. Retrieved from

Example: Brody, J. E. (2007, December 11). Mental reserves keep brain agile. The New York Times. Retrieved from";

If I choose the category "internet document", the publication date is displayed as it should, but I don't know where to enter the newspaper's name to get it displayed in cursive. Meanwhile, the article's title will be in cursive when it shouldn't be :C

I'd much appreciate your help, thanks very much.

Hi Jessica,

Thank you for your message.

For news articles, we recommend using the Citavi Picker. The Picker chooses the correct reference type "Newspaper Article" automatically.

In case you don't wish to import the details again, please enter the name of the newspaper in the field "Newspaper".

Kind regards,
