Some Notes about Business Sources

Many of the unique sources business students require making adaptations to APA's guidelines. A few principles used to create the examples on this page include:

  • If there is no title, put a description of the resource in square brackets.
  • Provide the name of the database and the url of of the database you retrieved the work from when it is necessary for readers to be able to retrieve the information from that database. For example, this would be necessary for a data set from Simmons but not from Business Source Complete.
