Hi, my name is Cristina Gutierrez-Brewster. I'm an English teacher, and today I'll be discussing with you how to properly cite a published interview. Now when you're citing published interviews it's not very different from when you're citing a newspaper or journal article. Just make sure that you establish beforehand what type of format you're going to be using. Now for today's purposes, I'm going to be using the APA format but double check with your professor if you're in a liberal arts type of coursework, it's probably going to be MLA, but grad school and business types are going to be using APA. So the first thing you want to put in your citation page is the author's name followed by a period. Make sure that the author's name has the last name first comma, and the first initial followed by the period. The second then when you have a published interview or any kind of newspaper article is you want to have the year and the month included followed by a period. A lot of times in APA we just include the year but for this one you need to also include the month. The third thing you want to do is the article title, the name of the interview, sometimes it will have other titles at the top of it, other times it will be blank. If it has a title, please make sure that you capitalize that first letter. The rest of them do not have to be capitalized. The fourth thing is the newspaper title or wherever the publishing source is. This one, once again you capitalize the first letter but this entire thing is in italics followed by a period. The last thing that you want to include is also the volume number, if it has one. If it doesn't have one, then you follow with a period but I do need to note that if it has a volume number, make sure that that changes to a comma right here and this is where your period goes. So once again, if you don't have a volume put a period here. If you do have a volume number then put VN comma and then the period. With all of those pieces put together you should have a pretty good citation. Still you want to double check with your professor, make sure that all these pieces comply with what they are expecting on their work cited page. Once again my name is Cristina Gutierrez-Brewster and that was how to properly cite a published interview.
