I have found this source for a research project. From what I can see, it was presented at the Institute for New Economic Thinking: Plenary Conference. I have never tried to us a source that wasn't either a website or a book. My question is two-fold;

1: How do I cite this?

2: Should this be considered a print source?

Please understand that I am a high school student just trying to get a paper done. I've tried asking my teacher, but haven't gotten an answer that actually makes sense. thank you in advance.

Victoria University in Melbourne, Australia, has guidance for citing conference proceedings at http://libraryguides.vu.edu.au/apa-referencing/conference-proceedings

Hope this helps:

The basics of a reference list entry for a paper in a published conference proceedings:

•Author or authors of paper. Surname followed by first initials.

•Year (in round brackets).

•Title of paper.

•Editors of conference proceedings.

•Title of conference proceedings (in italics).

•Pages of paper (in round brackets).

•Location of publisher.


•The first line of each citation is left adjusted. Every subsequent line is indented 5-7 spaces.
