Reference Company Report Harvard Style Bibliography

All tables should be clearly numbered with a title. Cite the source under the table.
For example:

Reference list:
Boden, LA, Anderson, GA, Charles, JA, Morgan, KL, Morton, JM, Parkin, TDH, Slocombe, RF & Clarke, AF 2006, 'Risk of fatality and causes of death of Thoroughbred horses associated with racing in Victoria, Australia: 1989–2004', Equine Veterinary Journal, vol. 38, no. 4, pp. 312-8.

APA references always have the same pieces of information:

Author. Date. Title. Access Information.

  • Author. The author of the report is likely to be the company itself. However, look around for the name of an individual author or editor; if you do not see one, you should likely use the company name.
  • Date. The date of publication is likely to be the year or year after the date of the annual report or report filing (a 2012 annual report might have been published in 2013, for instance).
  • Title. The title of the report might simply be Annual Report or 10-K Form, but do look closely at the report to see if there's a more specific title.
  • Access information. Access information will vary depending on the medium/type/location of the report. Your most likely scenario is that you found the report on the company's website. If so, you would use that URL. It is also possible you found it in the Mergent Online Database; if so, you will insert as the URL.
