Publishing & publications
- Your Publications - all UCL authors are strongly advised to check and maintain their publications lists in the Research Publications Service (RPS). See our RPS help page. Authors are also advised to check their IRIS profile (IRIS help is available).
- Your Impact - for advice on how to explore and improve the impact of your publications see our Impact page.
- Open Access (OA) - many funding bodies now require you as a grant-holder to deposit your publications in UKPubMed Central (UKPMC). For more information see our Open Access page.
You should always refer to instructions from your target journal or organisation
for definitive advice on which referencing style to use. IoN
students should consult the
IoN Education Unit.
- Harvard referencing style - there is no official 'Harvard style', it is used as an alternative name for the author/date referencing style (i.e. using author and date in parentheses to indicate a citation in the body of your document).
- Vancouver referencing style - again, there is no official 'Vancouver' style, it is used as an alternative name for numeric referencing style (i.e. using numerals to indicate a citation in the body of your document).
- For practical advice on applying 'Harvard' and 'Vancouver' styles to your documents, refer to UCL Library Services' guide to references, citations and avoiding plagiarism.
