Help with referencing: Home

These pages will help you with citing and referencing.  Most students at SHU will use APA.  Some courses will use other referencing styles.

The referencing help pages have been redesigned following feedback during 2016/17 from staff and students. We hope you will find it quicker and easier to find what you need.
