Citation Guides for Government Publications

There are several sites that are excellent online guides to MLA format for citing government publications:

  • Citing Government Documents: Modern Language Association
    A site developed by the University of Nebraska, Kearney. Follows MLA Handbook for Writers of Research Papers, 6th edition. Has many different examples of government publications.
  • Citing Government Documents: APA
    A site developed by the University of Nebraska, Kearney. Follows APA Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association. 6th ed. (2010). Has examples of many different federal and state government publications.

Article Databases

  Google Scholar

  • Google Scholar
    "Search across many disciplines and sources: peer-reviewed papers, theses, books, abstracts and articles, from academic publishers, professional societies, preprint repositories, universities and other scholarly organizations." Most are NOT full text. You can then use "Journals by Title" (bottom this page) to find the citation within Hannon Library Databases.

Find and Cite Government Information

  • RESEARCH GUIDE TO GOVERNMENT INFORMATION - Find information from government agencies and search for both U.S.and Oregon government information. Learn how to cite government publications. Use and FDsys to find online materials from the state and federal government.

Journals by Title

How do I find a particular journal?

  1. Open the Hannon Library Catalog.
  2. Select “In the title” from the first dropdown.
  3. Enter the journal title in the search box.
  4. Select Material Type: “Journals.”
  5. Hit Search.

If we have it, you should see results appear in a list. Click “View Online” to see options for reading the journal online. Click “Get it” to learn more about what physical print issues we have.

If you don’t see any links, then we probably don’t have it and you can request the article through Interlibrary Loan. It will take 1-7 business days and costs $2 for SOU students for each article. You will receive it electronically when it arrives.
