Find out more about plagiarism, citing and referencing.

Recommended Style Manuals at The UWI

The following list has been excerpted (and modified) from The UWI Thesis Guide (2015). For the full list, do visit here.

The list includes links to: 1) various online Research Guides/handouts (UWI STA Campus Libraries) which provide guidance on the styles or 2) the manuals.

If you are unsure which referencing style you should use (i.e. when a Faculty has more than one recommended style manual), kindly check with your Lecturer/Academic Supervisor.

For assistance on citing and referencing, please Ask A Librarian.
