Style notes for this reference type
- See Manual 15.37

- For in-text citations, when citing a particular passage, include the page number/s in the in-text citation. Do not use 'p' or 'pp' before the page numbers. Place a comma between the year and page number's. Refer to section headings in lieu of page numbers for online books without page numbers.
- For the reference list, use the name of organisation as the author for works published by groups, associations, corporations, etc.
