Business resources may lack stable article URLs that you can use in a citation. 

  1. Look for a permalink icon, similar to this:  
     
  2. If you don't see a permalink icon, examine the URL.  Does it appear to have a unique name/number that goes to the article?  Does the URL work if you try it in a different browser or a browser set to incognito?
     
  3. If you are unsure of whether the article URL is stable, then use the URL to the resource provided by the UCI Libraries (see the Euromonitor International example below).
