How to Cite a Brochure in APA Style | Format & Examples
Brochures and pamphlets fall under “gray literature” in APA Style, meaning they’re cited in a similar format to reports.
List the author (usually an organization rather than an individual), the year of publication, the title in italics, “Brochure” (or “Pamphlet”) in square brackets, and the name of the publisher. Omit the publisher name if it was already listed as author.
|APA format||Organization Name. (Year). Title [Brochure or Pamphlet]. Publisher.|
|APA reference entry||California University of Pennsylvania. (2010). Campus map and visitor guide [Brochure].|
|APA in-text citation||(California University of Pennsylvania, 2010)|
How to cite a brochure accessed online
If the brochure was accessed online (e.g., as a PDF), the format is the same except that you should include a URL linking to it at the end.
