Pros:

  • Newspaper articles can be a useful source of information if you want to gauge public opinion or you want local information.
  • They are easy to read and aimed at the general public.

Cons:

  • Often factually incorrect.
  • Aimed at general public so will often be too shallow in coverage for academic purposes
  • Newspapers usually have a political bias and agenda.

So always verify information found in a newspaper article.  

Currently you can search back issues of newspapers, including local papers, through a database called Nexis Newspapers:

Referencing systematic reviews from the Cochrane Library

Author, Initials. ‘Title of review’. Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviews. Year, Issue number, Article number. DOI: number.

e.g. Loveman, E., Royle, P. and Waugh, N. ‘Specialist nurses in diabetes mellitus’. Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviews. 2003, Issue 2, Art. No. CD003286. DOI: 10.1002/14651858.

When you connect to the review on Wiley, there is a 'how to cite' feature which you can use and adapt for the Harvard style as above.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Referencing the PDFs on the Joanna Briggs Institute (JBI) database
