FedUni uses three main styles of referencing:

  • APA - American Psychological Association
  • MLA - Modern Language Association
  • Chicago

You can download the General Guide to Referencing (pdf, 1.6mb) where each is described in detail.

In addition, Footnotes AGLC  (Australian Guide to Legal Citation) is used by some law courses. 

It is important to consult your unit description, lecturer or tutor for the preferred citation style for each subject you undertake.

We provide assistance for FedUni staff and students with citation and referencing queries. Further support is available from:
