Brunel uses many different styles of referencing, usually determined by discipline. Many subject areas at Brunel recommend a version of the author-date system Harvard – specifically Harvard (Cite Them Right).

However, other departments use a variety of alternative referencing systems and styles, including numeric referencing (IEEE), legal referencing (OSCOLA) and footnote/endnote systems (Chicago), as well as other versions of author-date referencing systems (APA). Students are advised to consult their module handbook or module leader for guidance on which referencing system to use, or get in touch with their subject’s Academic Liaison Librarian for help and advice. More support about referencing can also be found on Brunel Library’s Referencing pages.
