Education: Referencing Guidance

Referencing @ Education

APA is the referencing style supported by the Faculty, however in certain circumstances other referencing systems can be used (please check with your supervisor for clarification). Support for styles such as MLA can be found on the Cite them Right website.

Faculty of Education Referencing Guide

The Faculty Referencing Guide is the go-to guide for all of your referencing queries!  It provides detailed guidance on how to reference all source types, from books/ebooks and journal APA 7th Edition Referencing Guidearticles, to blog posts, videos and much much more!

You can navigate your way around the guide in two ways; either by the tabs along the top or by using the index on the left-hand side of the Index & General Information tab (note that the sections are not listed in alphabetical order but in order of the most commonly used sources).

Decide which type of source you would like to reference (website, blog, ebook etc) and navigate to the corresponding tab on the Guide.  Each tab includes guidance on formatting your reference list entry, with a template and examples given in green text.

Advice for in-text citations is given in the How to Write In-text Citations tab with any non-standard citation formats included within the reference list guidance arranged by source type.
