Technical and research reports often have not been published in the conventional manner. These documents may be self-published by authors, organizations, or government agencies. These can be conference proceedings, government reports, committee, company, or technical reports. It is optional - but often helpful to describe the source in square brackets after the title.
Follow the format used for books as closely as possible:
Author, A.A, (year). Title of work (Report No. XXXX). Publisher. https://xxxxxx
Name of Group. (year). Title of work [Description]. Publisher. https://xxxxx
