Government/Organization Reports

Online government/organization reports are treated similarly to electronic journal and book references: use journal style for articles and book style for monographs.

Notes
  • As with electronic journal references, of the dates published, updated, and accessed, often only the accessed date will be available.
  • If a publication number is provided, it can be helpful to add it into the reference. See third example below.

For more examples and information, please consult Section 3.15.5 of the AMA Manual of Style (11th Ed.).
