Citing Images

When referencing images that come from articles, it is perfectly acceptable to cite the parent article.

If you want to specifically cite the image, use the article citation and make the following changes:

  1. Check the article content for additional source information, such as a photographer or illustrator.

    • If an alternate name is available, use that in place of the article's author(s).

  2. If the image has a title or caption, use that in place of the article title.  

  3. After the article or image title and before the journal title, insert the image type. Image types are: Chart, Diagram, Graph, Illustration, Map, or Photograph.  

  4. Replace the page range of the article with the page number for the image.
