Generally three leading articles were published Tuesday - Friday (across the top third of the page), with two leading articles published on Saturday and Monday (in a column on the left side of the page). Leading articles were published anonymously each day as the collective view of the newspaper. Researchers should note that leaders do not necessarily express the personal views of their writers. They were published under the heading 'Comment' rather than the traditional heading 'The Guardian'.
