Citing Business Resources
  • Shana’s BUSX 301 Citation GuideNote: this guide adheres to the 5th edition of APA and consequently cites articles and online materials in a more streamlined way (examples cite the database for online articles, DOIs are not included for scholarly articles, and the retrieval date is consistently required). Please check with your professor before using this guide—they may be requiring the 6th Edition instead.
