Reference styles

In order for the in-text sources and the reference list to be consistent reference styles, for example APA, are used.

Reference styles 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. They are usually divided into three main types:

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

- Numbered (e.g. Vancouver)

-Footnotes (e.g. Oxford)

Different subjects use different styles and to know which one to use you should check with your lecturer or supervisor.
