How do I reference a market or industry report… in the APA7 style?
Those of you using market and industry research in your assignments will need to know how to correctly reference any reports that you include in your work.
To list a report in your references, you would need to record the following elements:
- Author(s) – either individuals (Surname, Initials.) or a group author – such as an organisation.
- (Date of publication).
- Title of report (with report number – if applicable – within a set of round brackets).
- Publisher name – omit this element if the publisher is the same as the author.
Say, for example, you were using the report from IBISWorld pictured below, your reference would look like this:
Dinev, K. (2021). Takeaway & Fast-Food Restaurants in the UK. IBISWorld. https://my.ibisworld.com/
Many research reports do not have a named author. If you were referencing the FitchConnect report below, which has no author listed, you would use the publisher’s name (FitchSolutions) as a corporate author and then omit the publisher details from your reference.
Your resulting reference would look like this:
FitchSolutions. (2022). Qatar banking & financial services report (Q4 2022). https://app.fitchconnect.com/
Remember to always format APA7 references with a hanging indent. This may not always be obvious with short references like those above.
For all your referencing questions – please contact your Library – Kings Norton Library and MIRC on Cranfield campus or Barrington Library on Shrivenham campus.
