MHRA Style


The MHRA style (from the English Modern Humanities Research Association (MHRA) Style) is generally accepted format for research design and academic works in the humanities, in particular: English, modern languages and literature.

You can insert any links that you consider necessary into the text of your document (for example, at the place where you quoted another text or refer to as the work of another author) as a footnote by using this style. The resulting link in this footnote is called a “quote” and its formats may vary.

A list of all the links you used is placed at the end of the document using these quotes. This list is called a "bibliography." References in the bibliography must be carefully formatted according to the type of material (book, article, etc.). Your bibliography should include the material that you used in your text only.
