MBA Quickstart: Report your work in APA Style

An MBA orientation to essential databases for researching publicly traded companies based on the internal/external layout of the SWOT analysis.+ Research essentials for small business

APA Style Guides from the 7th Ed. website

The links below are directly from the American Psychological Association website. Note that the School of Business may have requirements not listed in these, or other,  guides. Follow the APA Template provided in the LibGuide built for  your class, or your professor's instructions.

I no longer recommend the Online Writing Laboratory (OWL) at Purdue. Please note that the use of a Citation Generator is problematic if you do not already have a working knowledge of APA Style.

Legal References: In APA Style, most legal materials are cited in the standard legal citation style used for legal references across all disciplines. See Chapter 11 of the Publication Manual covers APA guidelines for legal references. For more information see The Bluebook: Uniform System of Citation (Bluebook, 2015). The Bluebook is available in the Wiggins Library Reference stacks (first floor) at call number KF245 .B58 2015.
