What is ISO 690:2010 (BS ISO 690)?

NEW 2022: We now support ISO 690:2021. Generate your references in the latest edition of the ISO 690 standard.

ISO 690:2010 is an international standard used as a general framework for providing citations and references in the text of scholarly articles, theses, and papers in different countries. BS ISO 690 is the British official version of the standard.

How is ISO 690:2010 specific?

In contrast to citation styles such as APA, MLA, or Chicago, ISO 690 sets forth only the general guidelines explaining which elements should be included in a references and what their order should be.

This means that there might exist many variations of the standard in terms of the capitalisation of names, punctuation, and so on. Before submitting your article or paper, make sure to read the requirements of your university/journal or contact your tutor.

On our website Grafiati, we have developed the algorithms for all ISO 690 citations based on a detailed analysis of the examples provided in the standard itself and the practices recommended by universities from different states. Moreover, we have implemented the bibliography menu for you to adapt the references you get to the needs of your institution.
