APSA (Print) House of Representatives Committee Hearing citation in APSA format

Government documents can be more difficult to cite properly than standard books, newspapers and journals, due to the specific nature of some of the documents. Government documents can be confusing to cite. APSA style is commonly used for citing government documents. They can take the form of anything from an informational pamphlet to a Congressional debate and everything in between. Unlike standard publications, these documents do not necessarily follow the pattern of author, title, publisher, date. The APSA guide will try to help to cite sources like Senate Floor Debate, House of Representatives Floor Debate, House of Representatives Committee Report, Senate Committee Hearing.

The point of a citation is to help your reader locate the exact document you are using. Government documents may not have some of the more familiar elements of a citation but they may have other elements you aren’t used to seeing. Include the following, as best you can, but always ask yourself if you would be able to lay hands on the document again using only the citation. If not, you may need to add more information and alter the form. Committee prints are the working papers and reports of committees. The Senate has an official numbering system for them (since 1983), but the House does not.

You may be used to getting this information from a title page and its verso. But with government documents, you may need to look all over the document: the front and back covers, in introductory materials, on the last page, or — in worst case scenarios — in the library catalog record for the item.
