Your lecturers may require a specific style for your assignments. It is important to follow their recommendations. When using a specified referencing style you must use its rules consistently.
No specified style? We recommend APA: a widely used author-date style that incorporates in-text citations and a reference list.
Referencing software is designed to help you manage and automatically format your citations and references in your chosen citation style.
If a particular reference type isn't covered in an online citation style guide, you may need to look at a style manual.
