Referencing styles

There are several different referencing styles used in academic study. Although most styles require you to include the same information, depending on the style you have have to present that information in different ways.

Schools and departments at Sussex use different referencing systems. If you are unsure which referencing style you are required to use it is best to speak with your School office, or consult your module handbook.
