What are in-text referencing styles?

In-text referencing styles use citations throughout the text, usually in brackets at the end of, or within the sentence, where it is appropriate. They include the author's family name(s), year of publication, and a page number when directly quoting or pinpointing a source.

The full details of each source referred to are included in the reference list at the end of the work.

In-text styles include APA, Chicago B and MLA.

Once you have selected your preferred reference style we recommend you review the General style notes section, to develop your understanding of the requirements of the style.
