How to Cite an Interview

Printer-friendly version

If you quote from an interview, or refer to it, you must cite it. When citing an interview, you should include the following information:

  • Full name of interviewer
  • Full name of interviewee
  • Title of interview
  • Location of interview
  • Date of interview
  • URL

For example, an interview could be cited in a footnote like this:

Donald Ames, interview by Cynthia C. Kelly, Atomic Heritage Foundation, Oak Ridge, TN, September 22, 2005, http://manhattanprojectvoices.org/oral-histories/donald-amess-interview

An interview could be cited in a bibliography like this:

Donald Ames. "Donald Ames's Interview." By Cynthia C. Kelly, Atomic Heritage Foundation. Oak Ridge, TN. September 22, 2005. http://manhattanprojectvoices.org/oral-histories/donald-amess-interview

There are many different style guides out there, and most have different rules for interview citations, so just be consistent with how you cite!
