Q. How do I cite a press release from a company's website?


Use the following format to cite a press release from a company's website:

Author, A. A./Company Name (Date). Title of press release [Press release]. Retrieved from http://(as much of the url that is needed to retrieve the press release).

In most cases, an individual author is not listed on a company's press release but rather the company is considered to be the author of the work. 

The in-text citation for a press release would use the following format:

(Author Last Name/Company Name, Year of Publication).
