Which referencing style should I use in my assignments?

Question:

Which referencing style should I use in my assignments?

Answer:

Your unit outline should tell you which referencing style to use. If you are unsure, you should ask your tutor or lecturer. 

The most common referencing styles used at Macquarie University are:

  • The Harvard System 
  • APA Style
  • MLA Style
  • Chicago Style

Learning Skills runs workshops on  referencing basics, APA and Harvard. 

The Library Referencing page offers a wide range of information about all styles, including links to guides.
