Formatting and reference guides
Hanken uses a formatting guide when it comes to academic papers and thesis.
The formatting guide, even if it uses Mircosoft Word as its template, gives a general conception on how writing programs work and this skill can be applied also to other writing programs. The formatting guide instructs you how to put your dissertations and other academic assignments in Hanken standard format. The guide also helps you use specific functions of Word programs.
Hanken reference guide is intended for students writing theses and other written assignments at Hanken. The guide follows the Harvard system for reference technique.
See this Libguide for information about referencing management software.
Down the page under Referencing Tools, you find links to Harvard, APA and Oxford reference guides and information on training sessions in Mendeley. There are also instructions on how to recognize and avoid plagiarism.
Which referencing style should I use?
The Harvard style (and APA) are the most commonly used referencing styles at Hanken, but at some departments the Oxford style is preferred. Whether unsure, ask your teacher or supervisor which style you should use. The guides and tutorials on this page will help you get the referencing right.
Reference Management Software
By using a reference management software, you can create your own database and get the list of references as output. Hanken's library supports the use of Mendeley. If you need help with referencing or Mendeley, join a training session, contact the library through firstname.lastname@example.org or book your personal appointment through the library's booking calendar.
