Need help with referencing styles? Start with this helpful guide.



  • The heading “References” is centred at the top of the list
  • References should be single-spaced with a one line space in between each reference
  • Each reference should be left-aligned without indents
  • The references are arranged alphabetically by author family name
  • If there is no author move the title to the author position.
  • If two references have both the same author and same year, use (2015a) (2015b) arrange alphabetically first by author then by title
  • Spell out the full name of a group author e.g. Australian Catholic University
