Format for chapters:
Magazine, periodical, and book titles should be italicized with no quotation marks. If "the" is the first word in a magazine, periodical, or book title, then it is italicized and capitalized. Example: The Story of Santa Claus (book), or The Saturday Evening Post (magazine). If "the" is not part of the official title, it should be in lowercase and not italicized. Example: They read the Los Angeles Times. The only exception is if "The" begins a sentence, in which case "The" is capitalized but not italicized. Example: The Los Angeles Times is found in most libraries. If "magazine" is part of a title, it is italicized and capitalized. Example: Mad Magazine. If "magazine" is not part of the title, do not italicize it. Example: LIFE magazine.
Titles of television series should be italicized and the first letters should be in capitals. Example: Highway Patrol. Titles of television series episodes are written in quotation marks. Example: In 1955, the pilot episode, "Road-Block", of Highway Patrol was televised.
Titles of articles and stories in magazines are not italicized. Enclose them in quotation marks.
