Law: Case Law: Referencing styles

A Library Guide to support students and staff of the University of Newcastle in finding Case Law

Referencing styles

There are many different referencing styles and they vary between disciplines.  When you reference you must be consistent and format all your references in the SAME style.

The Newcastle Law School requires work to be cited using the Australian Guide to Legal Citation 4th ed (AGLC4).

See our Referencing Guide for the other referencing styles used at UON.

Let's look at the article 'Post-fire survival and reproduction of rehabilitated and unburnt koalas', from the database ScienceDirect.

Here is the same article referenced in a few different styles for comparison.

APA 6th
Harvard
Vancouver
Chicago (footnotes entry)
