APA Citation & Business

The standard APA guides (see Citation Styles and Guides) will help with articles and books, but you may not find examples or specific guidelines for some specialized business resources. Just use your best judgment based what you know about APA and be consistent. Here are some examples:

Publisher/Database as author. (Publication date). Title of report. Retrieved from URL

IBISWorld. (2012, Oct.). Frozen Yogurt Stores. Retrieved from

Euromonitor. (2013, Sept. 19). Wine in Spain. Retrieved from

globalEdge. (1994 - 2017). Romania. Retrieved from

World Bank. (2016). Mobile cellular subscriptions [table]. Data retrieved April 21, 2017, from

For more help, the following guide (developed by a librarian) provides additional examples and tips.

Citation Tip

Let the databases do some of the work. Many of the databases on the Databases A-Z list have an internal feature that will produce a citation in various styles. Look for a link or icon titled "cite" or "save, print, email." You will have to check for accuracy, but it is a great way to get started.
