As a second year student, I regularly refer to the “APA citation style” article. So far, it has been a perfect and useful reference. However, while writing a recent paper, I realized that there are no guidelines for patent referencing. I think the article would be even more complete if you could add another section related to patent citation and referencing. Thank you for your invaluable time and consideration.
We’re glad you find the APA guide so helpful to your studies. Thank you for your suggestion, we have updated the APA guide with an example for Patents.
A good reminder, if you are looking for a citation example that is not included in our APA webpage, you can always consult with the print edition of the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association; multiple copies are available at both Webster and Vanier libraries: http://clues.concordia.ca/record=b2686393~S0
Thank you for your interest in Concordia Libraries.
