HeinOnline logo

Did you know that HeinOnline has a very useful Help & Support web page?

There are links to:

  • Training Guides
  • Videos and Webinars
  • Library [collection] specific support
  • FAQs

Their latest video shows you how to a print PDF file. They plan to add at least two new videos every month, and each one will be between two and four minutes in length.

Law essays and dissertations: citing resources with OSCOLA

The Oxford University Standard for Citation of Legal Authorities (OSCOLA) is a system of legal citation that has been adopted by most law schools in the United Kingdom, including the University of Aberdeen’s School of Law.

If you are unsure about how to cite primary sources or struggle referencing electronic vs paper journals, there are several guides available online to help you:

OSCOLA (4th edn., Hart, 2012). A comprehensive guide to citing authorities, legislation, and other legal materials. A hard copy of the manual can be found in the reference section at the Taylor Library issue desk.
OSCOLA 2006: Citing International Law. OSCOLA (4th edn.) does not cover International Law.
• Library’s Quick Guide to OSCOLA. Contains examples of some of the most commonly cited legal sources.

If you prefer to use software to generate citations you may want to investigate EndNote or Citavi reference management packages that can support the OSCOLA referencing style. Please note that OSCOLA is not supported by RefWorks.

And remember, you can always email Elaine Shallcross or Nicola Will if you have a question or come and see us at the Taylor Library in person!
