Academic Referencing Tool (ART)
The Footnoting referencing style is widely used in the classical fields of study. There are many variations of this style including Oxford, Chicago, Turabian and Documentary Note.
The Oxford footnoting examples in the (ART) are based on the New Oxford style manual, (Oxford University Press, 2012).
The Footnoting Referencing Style has two main features
- Citing: when you refer to another author's work in your work, you must cite your source by inserting a footnote number in your text. In the footnote at the bottom of the page write a full description of the source.
- Bibliography: at the end of your assignment provide a complete list of everything you have used when researching your assignment. It should include the references you cited as well as other sources you may have read but not quoted from.
NOTE - Changes to this Referencing style
The Oxford Style manual recommends that you use single quotation marks around any direct quote that you use in your essay. However the Turnitin services recognises only the text enclosed in Double Quotation marks as a direct quote. Therefore, if you have the opportunity to use Turnitin, all direct quotes should be enclosed in double quotation marks. In this Referencing Tool we have tried to be consistent, so we have presented all Harvard and Footnoting direct quote examples within double quotation marks.
