When there is no identified author or authoring organization for a source, move the title to the first position in the reference entry (where the author would normally go), before the publication date.
Justice department task force holds second public hearing on American Indian and Alaska Native children's exposure to
violence. (2014). Retrieved from: http://www.ojjdp.gov/newsletter/244623/sf_1.html
When you create an in-text citation, then you will use the first few words of the title in the place of the author’s name. If you are citing an article, a chapter, or a web page, be sure to place the abbreviated title in double quotation marks.
Many native children are exposed to violence that prevents them from developing into healthy adults (“Justice Department,” 2014).
If you are citing a whole journal or periodical, a book, a brochure, or a report, be sure the title is italicized.
The booklet explained the basics of college preparation (College Bound Seniors, 2008).
