Reports are similar to journal articles because they typically present research. Report references should be formatted the same as a book, but keep the following in mind:
- If the report has one or more authors, list those first as you would with a book.
- If the report has a number assigned to it, then that number needs to be included in the reference. It should be placed in parentheses immediately after the title.
- If the report comes from a government agency or organization and no author is listed, list the organization name first.
- If the publisher is the same as the authoring agency, omit the publisher from the source element.
