citation and referencing style

One issue that students and academics struggle with when crossing over into a different academic environment is working with citations and references. In some countries, there exists one style, which is taught at universities as “the citation style” and it is then used uniformly by everybody. In fact, there is even an international norm, which is strictly applied in some countries, ISO 690.

In contrast, especially in the Anglo Saxon world, students and academics come across many citation styles.
