Welcome to the fourth video in our series on Referencing, in Essay Writer!
We're around the halfway point for Referencing topics.
Let's take a breather with changing reference styles.
Bear in mind that details will vary between institutions, and even departments!
1. Reference Style?
The order, text formatting, and contents of your reference list are part of overall reference style.
You should stick to using only one style in a given paper.
The two styles Essay Writer has in-built are Indexed and Harvard.
To switch from one to the other: go to 'Edit', then 'Document Settings...'
Click the 'Bibliography' tab, and open the 'Reference Style' drop-down menu.
Select your preferred or required option.
You can choose to sort authors' names alphabetically within each reference.
2. Indexed, or (Numbered).
Often used by Natural Sciences,
Indexed produces shorter in-text citations, and a reference list ordered by first use.
In-text citations will be number from 1 to your total number of cited source materials.
These numbers carry over to your reference list, updating with changing order of appearance.
3. Harvard, or (Author, Date).
Usually used in Humanities,
Harvard presents more cited information, and alphabetical reference list by family name.
In-text citations require the surname, then first initial, or only the last name.
First mentions of a citation may need all authors listed up to five people, then 'et al.'
At the end of this video series, we'll delve into Expert Mode to customise reference styles.
Our next topic will still be light: quotations, and their sources.
Thank you for watching.
We hope you found this helpful!
Let us know how you find referencing.
We're always happy to learn about your success.
