Quick style question

    Need help with proper style for a journal article that is included in an article.

    Do you use quotation marks:

    Michael Johnson's article, "An Investigation of Academic Dishonesty Among Undergraduates at the University of North Carolina," found ...

    Or italics?

    Michael Johnson's article, An Investigation of Academic Dishonesty Among Undergraduates at the University of North Carolina, found ...

    Thanks for your help. Much appreciated. :)
     
  2. You couldn't use "Michael Johnson wrote"?

    Why must you list the headline? Get around it by using author, publication, date of article, etc.

    I would say it follows the same rules that it would if you were citing a headline from a newspaper story. So the journal name would be italicized, but the article name would go in quotes.
