Below are some examples for citing reports available from various business focused databases.
These examples are for citing company information, industry information, or results from the "Build a List" feature.
Citing information on an individual company:
Hoover's Inc. (2015). Chipotle Mexican Grill Incorporated. Retrieved January 28, 2015 from Hoover's database.
Citing information on an industry:
Hoover's Inc. (2015). Fast-Food & Quick-Service Restaurants. Retrieved January 28, 2015 from Hoover's database.
If you generate a list using Hoover’s “Build a List” feature, cite it using your own descriptive name for the list you created. Example:
Hoover's Inc. (2015). Reading, PA, restaurants in the 19601 zipcode. Retrieved January 28, 2015 from Hoover's database.
Cite an IBISWorld report as in the following example. APA says to include a report number, if given, in parentheses after the title. Example:
Brennan, A. (2014). Single location full-service restaurants in the US (Industry Report 72211b). Retrieved January 28, 2015, from IBISWorld database.
Wall, B. (2014). Full service restaurants – US. Retrieved January 28, 2015, from Mintel Academic database.
Notice that unlike IBISWorld, Mintel does not provide report numbers.
