Cite Business Reports

Below are some examples for citing reports available from various business focused databases. 

Note: Citations with more than one line of text should have a hanging indent of 1/2 inch or 5 spaces.


 

IBISWorld: 

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.


Mintel Reports: 

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.
