Oxford Referencing

Oxford referencing style also called the footnote referencing system, is a citation style that uses footnotes at the end of the page. In contrast to in-text citation styles like Harvard and APA, Harvard referencing follows a different citation format. The Oxford citation style is briefly described in this guide:

The Footnote Citation

You must cite all information sources, including any quotes or ideas you used, in your essay.

When citing another author's work in an essay, a superscript number is added according to the Oxford style. Repeat the superscript number at the bottom of the page, then include all the information you have about the author's work, including the page number, as in the example below. Start numbering your footnotes at 1, and keep going through your essay. The line dividing your essay's body text from the footnotes can be seen at the bottom of the page.

FOOTNOTE EXAMPLE
... was by no means the first to make this classical connection. As Dr Peter Londey says of Bean he
'turned for inspiration to the new, young radical democracy of Athens in the fifth century BC.1 Yet
an early report of the Gallipoli landing indicated that the strain of the battle caused the discipline to break down and for many soldiers to 'lose their way'.In the intervening years, public opinion has oscillated between these two points of view, remaining steadfastly 'pro ANZAC' until the end of the 1950s,3 then anti-war during the 1960s and 1970s, 'settling in the last decade to somewhere in the middle ground.4__________________________________________________________

Latin abbreviations like ibid. and op. cit. are no longer widely used in Oxford. If you frequently cite a piece of work in your essay, provide all the relevant information in the first footnote and use the shortened format of the author's surname, shortened title (without subtitle), and page number in future footnotes. The reduced footnote format is shown in the sample above in footnotes 3 and 4. In your reference list, always provide all pertinent information about the work.

The Reference List

Reference List should appear at the end of the essay on a separate page with the title "Reference List". All of your footnote information should be included, ordered from A to Z by the author's last name. The phrases "bibliography" and "reference list" are frequently used indiscriminately, however, a bibliography also contains sources you utilized to prepare your assignment, whereas a reference list only contains sources you have cited in your work. To find out which one is needed, ask your lecturer or teacher. Other things to consider:

  • In the footnotes, the author’s name leads to his surname i.e. P. Grimshaw, whereas in the case of Reference List the surname is placed first i.e. Grimshaw, P.
  • When putting a piece of writing into alphabetical order if it has no author, use the first substantial word in the title (not A or The).
  • Include the complete page range of a book chapter or journal article in the Reference List, for example, pp. 125-250. For whole volumes listed in the Reference List, page numbers are not necessary.
  • If you have referenced more than one piece of writing by the same author, list them in order of publication date, starting with the most recent. In order to distinguish between two publications with the same dates, put a lowercase letter just after the date, for example, 1990a, 1990b.
