Referencing Toolkit

What is it?

Your Reference List should be located on a separate page at the end of your assignment titled: References.

It should include the full details of all your in-text references (excluding personal communications), arranged alphabetically A-Z by author surname.

Other points to note:

  • List works with no author under the first significant word of the title.
  • Indent second and subsequent lines of each entry (5-7 spaces).
  • Use double spacing.
  • Use the centred heading in bold: References.
