Referencing: Brochure/Fact sheet/Template

Guide to APA 6th referencing style used at ECU

General format for end-text references

Treat brochures, fact sheets, templates etc. like books. As with any reference list entry, the four elements you’ll need are the author, the date, the title and source. Indicate the type of publication in square brackets after the title, unless the publication type is included in the title.
