Bibliography for Interviews
If you are citing a personal interview - that is, one you conducted yourself - the citation structure is simple. Include the name of the interviewee, last name first, then “Personal interview,” and the date the interview was conducted. The result should look like this:
Subject, Anne. Personal interview. Aug 22 2019.
If you are citing an interview performed by someone else, your citation should begin with the interviewee’s name, last name first, just like the personal interview. What follows depends on the format of the interview. If it appears in a printed publication like a book or magazine, the title of the publication in italics comes next, followed by any volume or issue numbers in plain text, followed by the year, followed by the page numbers in which the interview appears. Like so:
Subject, Anne. Interview with Anne Author. Amazing Interviews Magazine, vol. 4, no. 2, 2019, pp. 100-105.
If the interview has a title of its own, independent of the work it’s published in, be sure to include it in quotations in place of “Interview with Anne Author.” Here’s an example.
Subject, Anne. “Reflections on Being an Interview Subject.” Amazing Interviews Magazine, vol. 4, no. 2, 2019, pp. 100-105.
If the interview is one part of a television program or other broadcast medium, follow the same pattern above, but omit reference to volume, issue and page number. Instead, include the interviewer’s name as “By [name]” after the show’s title, along with year of broadcast
Subject, Anne. “Reflections on Being an Interview Subject.” TV’s Most Amazing Interviews, By Anne Interviewer, 2019.
