Music: Referencing Guide

Referencing style

The Music Faculty recommends that students use the MHRA (Modern Humanities Research Association)  referencing system.  In some areas of Music and Science the alternative APA (American Psychological Association) system is to be preferred. 

For citing audiovisual materials, the Faculty recommends the guidelines issued by the British Universities Film and Video Council which are available for download from their website.
