Citation, Documentation of Sources

Q. How do you cite a White Paper that was accessed online?

A. In general, such citations may follow the format for printed sources with the addition of a URL. The examples at CMOS 14.303–304 (16th ed.) can serve as a guide. Access dates are recommended only for undated documents. Sources consulted through commercial databases such as Westlaw or LexisNexis are treated like print sources but with the addition of the database name and any identification number. Please see CMOS 14.4–13 for additional considerations in citing electronic sources.
