Referencing at QMU

There are many different referencing styles. Queen Margaret University has developed a guide to provide staff and students with a common referencing style called Write and Cite: the QMU guide to the British Standard Harvard 2010 system of referencing.

Some subject areas follow a different referencing style - such as Psychology, which uses the APA referencing style - so it is essential you follow the guidelines in your course handbook.

Reference Management Software

Reference management software is a tool that allows you to organise your references and export citations and reference lists quickly and easily. At QMU we support two kinds of reference management software: RefWorks and Mendeley.
