1.2 How to refer to the same source throughout your document

If you need to refer to the same source several times, for example when you are discussing one or more literary works throughout your essay, there is no need to create a new footnote each time. For subsequent mentions you can use an abbreviated reference or ‘short citation’ in the text. 

Footnote
The first time you refer to the work, create a footnote which includes the full reference as normal. You can also set out in this footnote details of the short citation you will use to refer to the work in future, for example:  “Further references (to this work), are given after quotations/mentions in the text”. 

Subsequent mentions in the text - short citations
The short citation should usually be the author's name or a short form of the title, plus the cited page number(s). For example: 

McArthur, p. 62.


Macbeth, iii. 4. 99-107

If you are citing more than one work by the same author, for example if you are discussing two novels by the same author throughout your essay, use the author's surname and a short form of the title, plus the cited page number(s). For example:

Austen, Pride and Prejudice, p. 23
Austen, Sense and Sensibility, p. 171
