Referencing to electronic sources

In your bibliography you list all the works that you have used for your work. Since your readers must be able to identify and find your sources, it is important that the references are as complete and clear as possible.

What should be entered into a reference – electronic sources

  • When you refer to an electronic source (URL, e-book, database, etc.) you must always state that. In many systems you state it within parentheses (electronic) or (online).
  • Always state access date.
  • If it is a homepage, you should state when you accessed the page. Also print out a paper copy of the page or save it electronically.
