Citing company information

The content of electronic material for companies changes quickly. Always include the date you accessed the material from the source cited.

  • The author is usually the database provider
  • The date is the year of the publication of the profile
  • In the case of a database that has financial data that is updated regularly use the current year
  • Use a descriptive title to describe data from specialised sources such as Datastream and Bloomberg
