| This page provides links to basic guides on how to cite various print and electronic publications. A Word version of the guides is also available. The examples are based on the Harvard referencing system which refers to publications in the text by giving the author's surname and year of publication. If your work is for publication in a journal or book, you should always check the guidelines for authors provided by publishers as different formats are required by different journals.
The EndNote reference management system is a good means of systematically formatting references in a particular journal style.
Some journals ask you to abbreviate journal titles. Many publishers will have their own abbreviations, the ISO standard journal abbreviations are listed in the Journal Citation Reports.
