Acknowledging, or referencing, the sources of the quotes, theories, ideas, etc. you've used in your work will help you to avoid accusations of plagiarism.
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.
Contact library staff for any specific referencing queries or to find out more about referencing management software such as Zotero.
Training in using reference management tools is provided by Cambridge University Library. The Introduction to Reference Manager Programs provides information about reference management tools supported by University Information Services including links to their training courses and workbooks for Endnote, Zotero and Mendeley .
