What is referencing?

Different referencing styles

Many referencing styles exist, and different disciplines employ different styles. Each style has its own rules about how information is arranged and presented; some differences are minor, while others are much bigger.

Because there are so many different styles, it's important you stick closely to the particular one assigned in each of your courses. Find out which referencing style you need to use at the start of each new course, and follow the appropriate guidelines for all assignments in that course.

Information about some of these styles, including Harvard, can be found elsewhere on this website.
