How to Cite Content from Business Databases

Business databases and data can be challenging to cite because they do not follow the typical format as books and articles do.

Check out the helpful guide from the Business Librarian at Ohio University on how to cite content in APA style from key business databases -- like Mintel Market Research Reports, MRI Simmons Insights, Statista, and more.

Citation Generator & Organization Tools

Use any of these citation generators to quickly create citations. 

Use with caution, though. Not all are 100% accurate. Some miss finer details like capitalization or punctuation. Proof the final citations according to a style manual.
