Business Style: Introduction

Business Style

This guide is based on the The Gregg Reference Manual, 11th Ed. (New York, McGraw Hill, 2011). The business style is commonly used to cite sources in business reports.

Footnotes and endnotes are the business standard for documenting sources. When you use footnotes you do not need a separate bibliography or reference page at the end of the document. However, a reference page could be the best solution in PowerPoint reports where footnotes tend to clutter slide design.

In this guide you will find examples for creating both footnotes and bibliography entries.

The business style uses hanging indent formatting in the bibliography.


Information about the style can be found in the following sources:
