Corporate Documents

Corporate documents can be sources like technical reports, company reports, or brochures.

In-text citation for a quotation

            (Fun & Healthy Foods, Inc., 2009, p. 3)

Or

            Fun & Healthy Foods, Inc. (2009) claimed “the average weight of Americans is increasing by 3% each year” (p. 3).

Notes: If no individual author is listed on a company document, use the company name in place of the author. If an individual author is listed, then use the regular format: (Author, date, p. #).

 

In-text citation for a paraphrase 

            (Fun & Healthy Foods, Inc., 2009)

Or

            Fun & Healthy Foods, Inc. (2009) claimed that Americans are steadily increasing in weight gain.
