Referencing to printed 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.
There are rules stating what should be included in different types of references. Also, there is a variety of reference systems, stating exactly how this information should be written.
