You may see Dewey Defeats Truman (bare title) or Chicago Daily Tribune/Dewey Defeats Truman (periodical/Title Case) or Chicago Daily Tribune/Dewey defeats Truman (periodical/Sentence case) or The Chicago Daily Tribune/Dewey Defeats Truman (periodical/no year) or Chicago Daily Tribune/1948/Dewey Defeats Truman (periodical/year only) or Chicago Daily Tribune/1948/11/03/Dewey Defeats Truman (periodical/full date/Title Case). The optimal would be Chicago Daily Tribune/1948/11/03/Dewey Defeats Truman but all the other variations exist, and at some time in the future they will need to be harmonized.
