While a specific page number may be cited in a note, the inclusive page numbers of an article may be omitted, since they are widely separated by extraneous material. When page numbers are included, a comma rather than a colon separates them from the date of the issue.

Marlowe, Lara. "The Secrets of Snefru." Time, July 22, 1996, 66-67.

Article from a Newspaper (view detail)
Because a newspaper's issue of any given day may include several editions, and items may be moved or eliminated in various editions, page numbers may usually be omitted. If the paper is published in several sections, the section number or name may be given (e.g., sec. 1). To cite an article consulted online, include the URL.
