The Department attaches great importance to its students acquiring the skills needed to present academic work properly and with appropriate annotation.
Information on all the referencing systems in use by the departments in the Faculty is available in the Faculty Handbook.
Style guide - how to format your work
How to cite other authors
While not a formal requirement, the Department of Philosophy endorses the Chicago Manual of Style as our house style. We recommend that students adopt this method of referencing and bibliography. If you are in any doubt, or require guidance on the correct presentation of citations, please consult your teaching and/or personal tutor.
Other Departments may have their own formatting requirements that differ from ours. Please be mindful to check this with them.
Are there any other formatting requirements for coursework?
All summative coursework must be submitted with a Faculty of Arts & Humanities coversheet, fully and correctly filled out.
Over and above this, we ask that you think of your examiners and ensure that your work is presented neatly and clearly.
To that end, we recommend formatting your work as follows:
Font size to be no smaller than 11
Times New Roman, Arial or Calibri, or another suitably 'ordinary' font
