Government publications

The instructions in the following sections are valid for references to government publications. The APA (7th edition) manual does not contain any specific instructions on how to refer to government publications outside the United States. The recommendation is instead to format the references according to guidelines in each country. In the sections below you will find our recommendations on how to refer to Swedish laws and regulations, Government agency regulations, Legislative proposals, Swedish Government Official Reports (SOU), Departementsserien (Ds)Commission reports (utskottsbetänkanden) and EU legislation.
