Reports and conferences
Corporate author and publisher the same
When a work is created and published by the same entity, skip the author element, listing the title of the work first, followed by the name of the organization as the publisher only. (For example, see the citation for "Report by a government agency" below).
Abbreviating titles for in-text citations
When the title is used as the first element in the entry on the Works Cited page, the title will be used in the in-text citation. Abbreviate the title for the in-text citation. Remove the, a, or an from the title and include the initial noun phrase as the abbreviated title (see example below for "Report by a government agency"). The first word in the abbreviated title will be the word that the entry is alphabetized by on the Works Cited page so that it's easy for the reader to locate. If the title is short and only consists of a noun phrase, the title in the in-text citation will simply be the full title. For more details about abbreviating titles, see p. 117 of the MLA Handbook.
