How do you cite an advisory circular?

How do you cite a Congressional letter?

Use the MLA style template to cite a congressional paper. Begin by identifying the author as the government entity, followed by the title of the source. Then provide the publisher's name and the date: Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, United States Congress, House of Representatives.

In addition to the standard elements of academic citation, Congressional papers are usually not published in print form so cannot be cited using page numbers. Instead, use the volume number and the issue number for the document where available or otherwise described in the source itself. For example, if a Congressional report was published in two separate H bills that were voted on separately but included identical text, cite both volumes and include the appropriate page numbers when submitting your manuscript for peer review.

Citing individual members' letters is equally simple because they are not written up in legislative bodies so cannot be identified by volume and issue number. Simply list the author as they appear in the letter with no period at the end of their names. For example, the name of the person who wrote the 2001 Iraq War Resolution would be listed as "The President," not "President Bush."

It is important to note that it does not matter which body writes the letter; the recipient will always refer to it as a "letter from Congress" without specifying whether it is a joint letter, a Senate resolution, etc.

An example of a news article would be: "President Obama signs bill extending jobless benefits." This article was published in the Washington Post on April 2, 2013. The writer's name is not given, so this is how the citation for this text would look like: "Washington Post, President Obama signs bill extending jobless benefits."

How do you cite a policy report in MLA?

Give the author's surname name, the author's first name—if the name is unavailable, use the business name—the title of the policy in quotation marks, the name of the publisher, the date it was published, the page number if available, the format, and the date you accessed it if it is an online source. For example: "Carter, David, National Security Report: The New Politics of Nuclear Arms Control," Carnegie Endowment for International Peace, June 1, 1990, http://carnegieendowment.org/1990/06/01/national-security-report-new-politics-nuclear-arms-control/carter-david-1.

If there is no date available, just give the year. For example: "National Security Report: The New Politics of Nuclear Arms Control."

You can also give only the title, if it's well known.

Or you can omit the title and date completely if they are known from the context. For example: "Carnegie Endowment for International Peace, June 1, 1990."

In all cases, include page numbers if they are available. For example: "20-24."

Some publications list only the executive summary or main findings of their reports.
