Citing and Referencing (STA): Style Manuals

Find out more about the citing and referencing style manuals for your discipline.

Recommended Style Manuals at The UWI

The following table of recommended style manuals has been excerpted (and modified) from The UWI Thesis Guide (2015). For a full list of recommended style manuals, do visit here.

The table includes links to: 1) various online research guides/handouts (UWI STA Campus Libraries) which provide guidance on the styles or 2) the style 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.
