Referencing and Plagiarism

Referencing Styles

There are many different referencing styles, but academics typically use one of three basic approaches: author-year citations, numerical citations, or note citations.

Most courses at University of Suffolk will use UOS Harvard referencing style. However, this might vary from course to course or even from module to module or assignment to assignment.

If you are not sure about the referencing style that you need to follow for an assignment, you could check this with the lecturer or course leader.
