Articles in Journals with Continuous Pagination


Continuous pagination means that all of the issues of one volume have consecutively number pages; thus the first issue of the volume might contain pages 1-145 and the second issue of the volume might contain pages 146-290, etc. The following is a sample entry for an article from a journal with continuous pagination:

Gardner, Eric. "'This Attempt of Their Sister': Harriet Wilson's Our

Nig from Printer to Readers." New England Quarterly 66 (1993): 226-46.

Note that with this type of journal, issue number are not necessary, and that the year is sufficient for the date.
