About Citation Styles

The School of Linguistic, Speech and Communication Sciences recommends that students use an author/date style (otherwise known as an inline style or Harvard style).  APA is a popular choice and works well with EndNote.

APA uses a brief summary of the reference in the text (author and date) with the full reference stated at the end of the chapter or work. This final list is called a reference list or bibliography and is in alphabetical order by the first author's surname.

A short and concise guide to referencing styles, including APA 7th, has been produced by librarians at the National College of Ireland.

The Purdue Online Writing Lab (OWL) has some very detailed information on how to format your references using APA 7th both in-text and in your reference list.
