Colons when citing (in-text and end-text)

  • Within a paragraph, some referencing styles use colons to introduce long direct quotations or one that starts at the beginning of a sentence.
  • In a reference list, some styles use colons to separate the main title from the subtitle of a book, or article.
  • Follow the examples and instructions in your relevant referencing guide.
