Reference Page Examples - Company Information & SWOT Analyses

Although the APA Publication Manual provides instructions on how to cite many different resources, some business databases include information that is not addressed in the Manual. The examples below are NAU's careful interpretation of APA rules.

Example: 
            Marketline. (2021, September 7). Columbia Sportwear Company. [Company profile]. Business Source Premier.
 

*** Remember: Each source listed on the reference page must correspond to at least one in-text citation in the body of the paper; each in-text citation must correspond to a source listed on the reference page.
