Industry report

In-text referencing:

Groups that serve as authors (e.g. corporations, associations, government agencies etc.) are usually spelled out each time they appear in-text.


Direct quote:
Euromonitor (2012) states that "30% of those aged between 25 years and 34 years drank bottled water, down from 36% in 2007" (para. 2).

Young Australians are drinking less bottled water, with a 6% drop in consumption between 2007 and 2012 (Euromonitor, 2012).

Reference list Entry:

If no individual name is identified on an industry report, the authors are treated like a corporate or government author, e.g. the owners of the content (e.g. Euromonitor) are named. The database where industry reports are found (e.g. Passport) ARE NOT NAMED in APA 6.
