This guide lists handouts and some of the links that will be used in the hands-on workshop for students in CRIM 1101 (L10), taught by Dave Lyon, in spring 2022.
Note: the titles of legislation are capitalized and italicized in article titles (e.g. Charter)
Example of APA citation for government report made available through the Canadian Public Documents Collection (CPDC) database provided through the Canadian Electronic Library on the desLibris platform. Note: this e-book is also a government report:
Note: desLibris's CPDC database is simply providing a different route to access a government report that is also freely-available online, Most people won't have access to this database. So, I would highly recommend looking up the original online publication on the government website and citing it directly. Here is what that citation would look like:
Note: I found the report's catalogue number when I searched for the title of the report using Google. The first Google search result took me to the Publications Canada catalogue which provided extra descriptive information, plus a permanent link to the PDF.
Note: the name of the website is included, in addition to the URL, because it provides helpful information to the reader about which government agency produced the report
Note: if there is no individual author credited on the report, list the issuing organization as the author
Note: Juristat is an unusual journal. Most journals publish a fixed number of issues each year (with separate issue numbers), and each issue contains several articles. Juristat publishes individual articles, one at a time, online. Every article in a given year has the same volume and issue number. When you cite Juristat, you can treat it either like a journal or like a government report, because it is both. I prefer to cite it as a government report.
