Citing an E-Book with the Oxford Referencing Style

If you are referencing an e-book with the Oxford referencing style, you need to include all the relevant information in the reference list so that the reader can easily locate the source. In this case, the information required is:

Surname, Initial(s)., Title, place of publication, publisher, year, Available from: database name, (accessed DD Month YYYY).

With all the information properly included, you will have an entry that looks something like the example below in your reference list:

Kelsall, R., I. Hamley, and M. Geoghegan, Nanoscale Science and Technology, Chichester, John Wiley & Sons Ltd., 2005, Available from: Google Books, (accessed 16 February 2013).

When referring to an eBook in a footnote, the format is fairly similar, but should include page numbers for the part you are referencing. There’s also no need to reverse the first listed author’s names.

Using the same example as above, for instance, a footnote citation would look like this:

1. R. Kelsall, I. Hamley and M. Geoghegan, Nanoscale Science and Technology, Chichester, John Wiley & Sons Ltd., 2005, p. 24, Available from: Google Books, (accessed 16 February 2013).
