Reference List


Author, A.A. (Year). Title (Version x.x) [Format/Description]. Publisher. http://xxxxxxxxx


Treyarch. (2015). Call of duty: Black ops III [Computer game]. Activision Blizzard.

Epic Games. (2017). Fortnite [Computer game]. https://www.epicgames.com/fortnite/en-US/home


If you cannot identify the author/developer, create the reference as if it had no author. For more information see the Authors button below.

If the game is available online include the URL.

Common software and apps that are mentioned in your text, but not paraphrased or quoted, do not need citations. Simply give the name and version number in text. E.g. "navigation was enabled by Google maps", "data was entered into Excel (2010)".

If the software is available online include the URL.

If the author is the same as the publisher, as in the Fortnite example, omit the publisher.
