SIDELIGHTS:

Jean Marie Lutes is an assistant professor of English at Villanova University whose first book, Front Page Girls: Women Journalists in American Culture and Fiction, 1880-1930, combines many of her personal research interests. During the fifty-year period covered in the text, Lutes looks at female journalists and how they thrived in their profession in ways that men simply could not. Lutes discusses stunt reporters, "sob sisters," and even fictional female journalists. Kimberley Mangun, in a review for H-Net: Humanities and Social Sciences Online, found that "the scope of Lutes's book is impressive." A contributor to the Reference & Research Book News noted that the "period illustrations enhance the text." Writing in Library Journal, Margaret Heilbrun commented that Lutes's understanding of the field of journalism was put "to superb use in this fascinating, clearly enunciated examination." Heilbrun concluded that "Lutes's work is a revelation."

Citation styles

Encyclopedia.com gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).

Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.

Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, Encyclopedia.com cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use Encyclopedia.com citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:

Notes:
  • Most online reference entries and articles do not have page numbers. Therefore, that information is unavailable for most Encyclopedia.com content. However, the date of retrieval is often important. Refer to each style’s convention regarding the best way to format page numbers and retrieval dates.
  • In addition to the MLA, Chicago, and APA styles, your school, university, publication, or institution may have its own requirements for citations. Therefore, be sure to refer to those guidelines when editing your bibliography or works cited list.
