New edition of Cite Them Right now available

Cite Them Right is the book and website used by St George’s to guide you in how to reference correctly. The 11th edition of Cite them Right (2019) has now been published and will be used by St George’s from September 2019.

The great news is that there are no major changes, so if you currently have the 10th edition (2016) out on loan you can keep using it until you get the chance to return it. 

The new edition includes more examples for you to use, including examples of how to reference a NICE Guideline or a Cochrane Systematic Review. The website,, has been updated to reflect these changes and we’ve updated our referencing helpsheets with these new examples too.

From September onwards you should use the 11th edition if you need guidance on how to reference.  Copies are now available on the Library shelves and you can search for the new edition in Hunter. Copies of the previous 10th edition will be removed from circulation as and when they are returned.

The full reference for the new edition is as follows:

As ever, if you have any questions about referencing, you can email the Liaison Team for support on or drop by the Research Enquiries Desk between 11am and 2pm Monday to Friday to speak to a member of staff in person.
