Citing Guide for Business Majors: Get Started

A citing guide for business majors that's based on the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association (6th ed.)

Important: Please Read

This LibGuide was created to assist business students with citing sources in APA style.  Before you start your research, always check with your professor on the citation style requirements for your course assignments.

APA Style

Please note:

  • This guide is an adaptation of the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association (6th ed.), not a substitute for it.  Because the APA Manual does not provide citing examples for unique business sources, such as an annual report or company profile, some of the examples in the "Citing Guide for Business Majors" are based on an interpretation of the APA guidelines. 
  • For some sources, you may need to consult the APA Manual and interpret the rules to the best of your own ability. Copies of the manual are located at the Irwin Library Information Commons Desk and at the Writers' Studio.

APA Style Manual 6th ed.

The American Psychological Association style is used in the social sciences, business, anthropology, and some of the life sciences.
