indexes: newspapers and periodicals

  • Gazette, The

List French-language and foreign-language newspapers under the first noun:

  • Journal de Montréal, Le

Note: The article may be dropped unless the omission will cause difficulty or will appear curious, e.g. Droit, Le.

In periodical citation indexes the abbreviated forms of titles are used (see bibliographies: books and bibliographies: articles).
