Guides to referencing images

architecture photoWe have received a flurry of enquiries about referencing images in your work, and so have produced a series of downloadable guides on referencing images in essays and dissertations.

Essays and reports

For most essays and reports, image sources are included in the reference list/bibliography at the end of the work, following the guidance given on Referencing@Portsmouth in the “Image, Illustration or Diagram: Reference List (APA 6th ed.)” section of the Referencing@Portsmouth website.
