HOW TO CITE AN ONLINE GOVERNMENT REPORT OR DOCUMENT WITH AUTHOR(S)

Author, A. (Date of publication). Title of document in sentence case and italics: Capitalize first word of subtitle. Retrieved from http://website.com/full

Formatted example:‚Äč

There are two options for citing this source in-text:

1) Last names of author, year of publication, and page number(s) are placed in brackets at the end of the sentence. If there are no page numbers, refer to the paragraph number or heading within the text:

(Davergne, 2013, pp. 4-5).

2) Alternatively, the citation may be integrated into the sentence with a signal phrase and narrative:

Davergne (2013) described how "[c]ases completed in youth courts” in 2011/2012 fell “10%...from the previous year” and “reflects the lowest number of completed youth court cases since these data were first collected by Statistics Canada” (p. 4).
