Newspaper uses an image resolution of 170dpi at the size of the picture used.
This is because it uses an 85 line screen.

Lets say you want to have a photo 2" by 3" you would need 340 px by 510 px.
Or 2" x 3" at 170dpi.
Hope it helps.

Depends a lot on what newspaper you're talking about. Newspapers might print at 170dpi, but you don't need 170dpi. The content is paramount in newspaper images generally speaking, not technical quality.
