Referencing styles at FFA and FST

You are responsible for the final content of your in-text citations and references. It is recommended that you get familiar with your citation/referencing style so that you may edit the software output accordingly.

According the UWI Thesis Guide, Chicago Manual of Style 16th ed. Author-Date Format is the citation style to be used by the Faculty of Food and Agriculture and the Faculty of Science and Technology.

However, students in the Department of Chemistry must use the American Chemical Society (ACS)  citation style.

Students who are doing the Occupational Enviornmental Health and Safety (OESH) Porgramme, though based in the Department of Chemistry are required to do Chicago Manual of Style 16th ed. Author-Date Format.
