Printed APA (6th ed.) referencing booklets are once again available for you to collect from the Library Help Desk. This updated version of the booklet includes an expanded explanation of why you need to reference things you use in your academic work and outlines the ground rules and idiosyncracies of the APA referencing system. If you prefer to read a pdf download, you can find the guide online in our Library Guides collection.
Remember that Referencing@Portsmouth offers even more comprehensive referencing guidance for every referencing system we support, and goes well beyond the scope of any printed booklet we could produce. Library staff are also referencing experts and are here to help explain how referencing works and answer your referencing queries. You can get in touch at any time: our out-of-hours team staff chat outside library working hours so you can get instant answers by phone or online chat 24/7 every day of the year!
