The Department does not have an officially mandated referencing style. Check whether your tutor or supervisor has any specific requirements. Similarly, if submitting research for publication, many journals specify a particular style that must be used.

Referencing software makes it easier and faster to keep track of your references and to cite them in the correct style.

  • Most referencing software (including RefWorks, EndNote, and Mendeley) allow you to export all your existing references to BibTeX format.
  • Many scientific databases have BibTeX as an output option. If not, upload those results to RefWorks (or other viable software), then export to BibTeX.
