Citation styles

When writing assignments, reports, research papers or theses, you must acknowledge quotations, information and ideas taken from other authors through a bibliography or list of references.

There are a number of specific styles that can be used. Western Sydney University Library has developed guides for the citation styles most commonly used within the University.

It is important to first consult your unit outline or Learning Guide, lecturer or tutor for the preferred citation style for each unit you undertake.

These citation style guides are designed to cover the most commonly asked citation and referencing questions.
