APA Guide: Citing a Government Document

A step by step guide created by the Bryan College of Health Sciences Library that gives a summary of how government publications fit within the APA Style Guide. It also features templates and completed citation examples for government publications in various formats.

Guide: Citing U.S. Government Publications

Guide based largely on Garner and Smith's The Complete Guide to Citing Government Documents: A Manual for Writers & Librarians (1993). You will still need to consult your specific style manual to fine tune these examples, but it is helpful in understanding the various types of government documents.

Docs Cite

A step by step guide created by the Arizona State University  that helps you create citations for government publications using MLA or APA. Uses a fill-in-the-blank template which you fill out. As always, it is important to check any citation created by a citation generator against the official style manual you will be using.
