Include as much detail as possible.

  • No Author? - If your zine has no author, or if the author is "anonymous" begin your citation with the title of the zine.
  • Undated? - If your zine has no date use n.d.
  • No Place of Publication? - If your zine has no place of publication use N.p.
  • No Publisher? - If your zine has unknown publisher (and most are self-published) use n.p.
