Easy Cite was developed using the relevant style manuals. Some styles are open to interpretation. Easy Cite is intended as a guide only.

The Library includes as many examples of reference types as possible. If the style does not include your specific reference example, consider applying the format from existing examples within Easy Cite to your reference or checking the relevant style manual.

Easy Cite includes links to the relevant style manuals which are located under "Using Harvard" or "Using APA" etc.

For guides to other referencing styles, or if you'd prefer to work with a printed guide, visit our Referencing guides for printing.
