Citing General Sources

Citing Business Sources

Both the APA Publication Manual and generic citation generators usually lack coverage of the more specialized business databases at BCIT Library. The sites listed below will help you create citations for sources such as Simply Analytics and Passport.

Citing Aviation Sources - Examples

Here are some essential components of a reference list citation for a general web source:

Author, A. (Year, Month Day). Title of online content: Subtitle. Website name. https://URL

See this example from Simply Flying:








Memon, O. (2023, August 4). Why does Boeing's commercial market forecast dictate a significant need for flight crews? Simply Flying.

*Note: For the date, the article is stated as being " Published four days ago" and this example was created on August 8th. 

Here is another example from this Air Canada page:


Rousseau, M. (n.d.). Safety Policy. Air Canada.

*Note: n.d. = no date and the CEO seems to be claiming authorship for this policy.

Here are some elements for citing images from the web:

If you include an image in your paper from a source that clearly states there is no attribution required then you do not need to include an in-text reference, reference list entry or copyright note. Include a Figure number (i.e. Figure 1) and a title above the image. A note below the image is optional.

If the source states that attribution is required, then include a copyright statement in a note below the image and a reference list entry.

Copyright statement Note: From nature [Photograph], by Elisa Bracco, 2006, Flickr ( CC BY 2.0. Reference List: Bracco, E. (2006). nature [Photograph]. Flickr.

See for detailed instructions on how to cite images within your paper or presentation.

See this Brock University guide for citing within presentations.
