Departmental and Subject Guidelines
Different departments and subjects use different citation or reference styles and therefore the best source of information on the accepted style in your area is your Department. Check your module or course handbook for information on referencing and bibliographies first.
The following departments have guidelines on the web:
- Biological Sciences (Adobe Presenter)
- MHRA (Modern Humanities Research Association) - Style Guide
- Psychology - Shortened Version of the APA Publication Manual
- Psychology - Citing electronic resources using the APA style
Your Librarian can also provide general advice and help on referencing. However you should always check your departmental handbook for the citation style for your subject.
