This LibGuide was designed to provide you with assistance in referencing your sources when writing an academic paper.

Reference styles

In order to enable others to locate these sources, and to acknowledge the original authors, you will be required to provide reference details using a specific referencing style.

A reference style:

  • Can help you to cite and reference correctly
  • Offers standard formats to ensure that you include all the information your readers will need to find the work you are referring to
  • Can be determined by your module or course or by a publisher if you want to publish your research
