    I have never referenced another persons paper like this, would you be able to give me an example of how to structure it?

    1. Ed, no problem!
      Your university should be able to help, but the standard format from memory would be:

      Geraghty, Tom. “The social and environmental effects of mountain biking at bestwood park in nottinghamshire” 2000. Dissertation submitted as part of a B.Sc. (Hons) at Nottingham Trent University, Nottingham.
