If you are using either Zotero or Mendeley as your referencing software, you will need to choose a style that matches the Academic Learning Centre (ALC) guide for your referencing style. These are the best matches, but you may still need to do some editing to if there are differences between these versions of the styles and your ALC guide. Use the link to download the style file.
