# How to cite a Newspaper Article in Latex using Chicago Manual of Style

I need to get something like this:

Jaggi, Maya. “Interview with Amy Tan.” The Guardian. Guardian News and Media, March 3, 2001. https://www.theguardian.com/books/2001/mar/03/fiction.features.

Using the code:

@Electronic{jaggi_2001,
title={Interview with Amy Tan},
url= {theguardian.com/books/2001/mar/03/fiction.features},
journal={The Guardian},
publisher={Guardian News and Media},
author={Jaggi, Maya},
year={2001},
month={Mar}}


In Latex, using Chicago Manual Style. The main problem I am facing is to use which one of the @Book, @Article, @Misc, @Online etc. I have tried all of them but could not get the above result.

The source for the above style is at https://libguides.williams.edu/citing/chicago-author-date#s-lg-box-12037256

Will appreciate if someone has used any technique for this.

• welcome to tex.se! please provide your code in question. link can be dead after while, so other will not able to see your problem. – Zarko Feb 18 '19 at 9:08
• I am using this command line for Bibliography generation: \bibliographystyle{chicago} and using \usepackage{mychicago}. and in the Bibtex file, I am using @Electronic{jaggi_2001, title={Interview with Amy Tan}, url= {theguardian.com/books/2001/mar/03/fiction.features}, journal={The Guardian}, publisher={Guardian News and Media}, author={Jaggi, Maya}, year={2001}, month={Mar}} – Hasan Noor Khan Feb 18 '19 at 9:31
• Are you willing to switch to biblatex? Customising chicago.bst is a pain, but newspaper articles are supported out of the box using biblatex-chicago. – David Purton Feb 18 '19 at 9:52
• @David Purton, please guide me how to do that...yes, I may switch – Hasan Noor Khan Feb 18 '19 at 10:18

You can use biblatex-chicago instead of \bibliographystyle{chicago} and \usepackage{mychicago} (probably: I don't know what this is, but presumably it is a modified version of chicago.sty).

biblatex and biblatex-chicago are highly and easily customisable and both have excellent documentation. There are also many questions on this site about using them.

A simple MWE for biblatex-chicago looks like:

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{filecontents}
\begin{filecontents}{\jobname.bib}
@article{jaggi_2001,
entrysubtype = {newspaper},
author = {Jaggi, Maya},
date = {2001-03-03},
title = {Interview with Amy Tan},
journaltitle = {The Guardian},
url = {https://www.theguardian.com/books/2001/mar/03/fiction.features}
}
\end{filecontents}
\usepackage[authordate]{biblatex-chicago}

• @HasanNoorKhan, You probably need to set up your editor to run biber instead of bibtex. – David Purton Feb 25 '19 at 9:38
