Example reference formats for different source types
Points to note:
In all the examples that follow, for simplicity we have demonstrated each example as if citing an author’s work in its entirety, rather than a specific idea. Depending on what you are citing or what you have already included within your written text you may need to also include a page number or just include the year, e.g.: (Eagleton, 1983, p.110) or (1983, p.110) or …Eagleton (1983) writes that… Please refer to the section on citing for detailed guidance
Always take your tutors’ preferences on referencing
