When reference is made to an article, like an article in a magazine, put the title between quotation marks and use title-style capitalization: caps for the first and last word (no matter what they are), all the nouns and verbs (no matter how short, including "Is") and just about everything else, except the articles (a, e, o), short conjunctions (and, but), and short prepositions (in, of, by, to, by, etc). Examples:

"Walk Softly and Carry a Big Stick"
"The Cat That Walks by Himself"
"I'm going to Take the High Road and Take the right Path"
"The Name We Know Him By"
