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'. Generally three leading articles were published Tuesday - Friday, with two leading articles published on Saturday and Monday. On Friday 25 January four anonymous articles were published under the heading 'The Guardian' and two further under 'Comment'. All are included in the cuttings book.

From Tuesday to Friday the leading articles appear across the top third of the page. On Saturdays and Mondays the leading articles are generally published in a column on the left side of the page. From Tuesday 22 1991 the leading articles appear as columns with the exception of Saturday 16 February 1991 when they appear across the top third of the page.
