The Faculty of Philosophy does not impose any particular referencing style. Many different ways of giving references are used in academic publications. All systems are acceptable, provided they are applied consistently. Suitable common referencing styles include the Harvard system (author-date), or MHRA.
For further information see the Faculty's presentation guidelines (PDF)
We have access to Cite Them Right which is very useful for answering all your referencing questions!
Guides to referencing and style guides can be found in the Study skills section of the Philosophy Faculty Library.
