Citing Business Sources
Based on the MLA Handbook, 7th edition, this guide has been adapted and simplified for citing sources available to JSC business students. In developing these examples, we have followed the forms for comparable types of reference sources, considered the citations generated in online databases such as Business Source Premier, and examined numerous tip sheets available on college and university library websites.
