CEMS Harvard Referencing Style: Publications and Reports of Corporate Bodies and International Organisations

Referencing Publications of a Corporate Body

When a publication is not the work of an individual author or of authors working collectively, but comes from an organization, association, international organisation, government or any official body, then the authorship is attributed to that corporate body. This will include reports published by these entities.
