We hope that our referencing guide, complete with some new examples and a frequently asked questions (FAQs) section, will help you reference your course assignments correctly.
If you are new to the RGU Vancouver system of referencing, introductory material can be found on this page and in the Plagiarism, Basics, Citations & reference list and Elements in references pages.
Examples for the most commonly referenced types of material now have their own pages - just choose the tab for Books with author(s), Books with editor(s), Journal articles or Web pages.
If you want to jump straight to an example of how to reference another type of material just hover over the relevant alphabetical tab and choose the type of material you require.
Remember that you need to follow the examples exactly - using capital letters, italic and the correct punctuation as shown in the examples. Failure to follow the examples is very likely to mean you lose marks.
