Which Reference Style Should I Use?
Most departments at Portsmouth use the APA 6th ed. style. Exceptions include:
- If writing about law, or for a qualifying law degree, and asked for footnotes use the OSCOLA style
- The School of Pharmacy & Biomedical Sciences uses the Vancouver style
- History units taught in the School of Social, Historical & Literary Studies use the Chicago 16th ed. style. Guidance is available from The Chicago Manual of Style Online.
- Biology related subjects use a slightly altered version of the APA style
