Titles of Works

UPDATE: We will discontinue using quotation marks to identify parts of an article, but retain the capitalization; eg, This is discussed in the Methods section (not the “Methods” section). This change was made February 14, 2013.

In the text, use quotation marks to enclose titles of short poems, essays, lectures, a single episode of a radio or television program, songs, the names of electronic files, parts of published works (chapters, articles in a periodical), papers read at meetings, dissertations, and theses. (See also 10.5, Capitalization, Types and Sections of Articles, and 22.5.4, Typography, Specific Uses of Fonts, Italics.)
