Guide to Referencing

The Royal Wolverhampton NHS Trust does not have a particular standard for referencing. However, the Cite Them Right book  by Richard Pears and Graham Shields is a popular choice. It provides guidance on the most popular referencing styles of Harvard, APA, Chicago, IEEE, MHRA, MLA, OSCOLA and Vancouver. It includes a diverse range of sources to be referencing from graffiti, packaging, medical images, powerpoint presentations, twitter and e-mail.
