Referencing Zephyr

This is the advice from  the company that  provides the database:

  • We refer to ourselves  as Bureau van Dijk
  • When citing  us as a source we prefer  that  both  our company  name and product name are included, for example, 'Zephyr, published by Bureau van Dijk'
  • We no longer  use acronyms  for our product names, such as 'financial analysis  made easy' (Fame). Instead, we simply  use the products names, i.e. Fame, Zephyr
  • We write  our product names in title  case (not uppercase)

See you referencing guide for further advice.
