Citation styles

Citation styles at FHWS

At FHWS, there is no centrally prescribed citation style. In reference management programmes, however, you can choose and set an appropriate style.
As there are different ways of citing literature, the Library would like to recommend the following:

  • For references in footnotes: Chicago Manual of Style
  • For references in the text (Harvard): Deutsche Gesellschaft für Psychologie (DGP)
  • For shortened references in the text (AutJJ): LNI, Zitatseiten
  • For numbered references: IEEE Editorial
