Reference styles

In order for the in-text sources and the reference list to be consistent you will use a reference style. Different subjects use different reference styles and to know which one to use you should check with your lecturer or supervisor.

The reference styles are usually divided into three main types:

-Parenthetical or author-year (e.g. APA)

- Numbered (e.g. Vancouver)

-Footnotes (e.g. Oxford)

Reference guides for some common reference styles

Reference guides describe which information should be included in the in-text sources and the reference list and in which order of the information should be presented.
