References to brochures or pamphlets are formatted in the same way as those to entire books. If the author is a corporation or organization, begin the reference with the corporate author. In square brackets after the title, identify the publication as a brochure.
Often a brochure or a pamphlet will not contain all of the information you require for a reference. If there is no date of publication, use the abbreviation n.d. (for "no date"). If there is no city or location identified for the publisher, use square brackets around the name of the city where the publisher is located, e.g. [Ottawa, ON]: Health Canada.
In many cases, the corporate author of the pamphlet is also the publisher. If so, substitute Author for the publisher's name in your reference.
