Writers Workshop: Writer Resources
Modern Language Association (MLA): Corporate Authors
When a corporation or other group whose individual members are not named on the title page has authored a text, you would cite the source as follows:
- Alan Guttmacher Institute. State Legislative Record: 1988 Fertility-Related Bills and Laws as of December 31. Washington, D.C.: Alan Guttmacher Institute, 1988.
- Hunter College Women's Studies Collective. Women's Realities, Women's Choices. New York: Oxford UP, 1983.
The corporate author's name should appear in full, followed by a period and one space. Even if the corporate author and the publisher are the same, the corporate author's name should still appear in the author (as well as publisher) position of a bibliographic entry.
For additional information, please see the MLA Handbook for Writers of Research Papers (6th edition) and the MLA style website.
