Citing references

The Library has produced quick guides for all the referencing styles used at the University.

Guide to referencing styles

These guides are designed to give you guidance on referencing the commonly used resources. For more detailed guidance you are advised to use the websites below. Please check with your tutor to ensure you are using the correct referencing style.

Sometimes you may need to use a particular style not shown here, perhaps as you submit a paper for publication. Contact if you would like advice on this.

Also, take a look at our Referencing FAQ for further support.
