Style notes for this referencing type

  • For medium use videocassette, audiocassette, DVD, etc.
  • If there is no author, editors may be moved to the author position.
  • Names of producers are added after the medium type. Follow that last named producer with a comma and the word producer or producers.
  • If no place of publication can be found but can reasonably be inferred, place the city in square brackets. eg [Melbourne].
  • If no publisher can be found, use [publisher unknown].
  • If no date of publication can be found, use the copyright date preceded with ‘c’ c2010. If no copyright date can be found, use [date unknown].
