If you decide to use a source that doesn't have an author (either an individual or an organization), you'll use the title, as the author, when citing it.

For the in-text citation, you can use a shortened version of the title in quotation marks, followed by the date and the page number (or other locator, such as a paragraph number).

Example: Always do your homework before heading to the dealership – comparison shopping for auto loans can save you a lot of money (“Road map to a great deal,” 2009, p.46).

Your reference list citation will start with the title of the source (rather than the author) followed by the date; all other elements are the same. Place it in your reference list in alphabetical order according to the first letter of the title.

Example: Road map to a great deal. (2009, October). Consumer Reports, 74(10), 44-47.
