APA 7th Edition Referencing Guide1

A Wintec Library guide to referencing in APA 7th edition style

How do I reference sources that are not available to the public?

Some works, like classroom resources, are only able to be accessed by a certain audience (they are not available to the general public). This may take the form of course material (lecture notes on Moodle, for example) or a document published internally by an organisation (like a company policy).

For referencing your classroom resources click on the button below.

If the resource you want to cite is a document from an organisation's intranet (it has been published on a local computer network and is only available to the employees of that company/organisation), you will need to cite it as personal communication. This is because there is no way for your reader to access the information.

You will need to make it clear in the body of your assignment what the personal communication was (a policy document, for example) and where it came from (name of the organisation).
