How do I cite a work by a think tank?

A think tank is a type of organization, so you should cite a work by a think tank according to the guidelines in section 2.1.3 of the MLA Handbook for citing a work by a corporate author: “an institution, an association, a government agency, or another kind of organization” (104). 

For examples of how to cite works by corporate authors, read our posts on citing PDFs and on citing reports.
