MHRA Style Guide

The MHRA Style Guide is an essential reference for scholars, students and editors in the Modern Humanities. MHRA style was originally codified for the Association's own journals and books, but it is now used much more widely. Many universities require theses and other written assignments to conform to MHRA style. The Guide gives guidance and clarity on such points as spelling and usage; names; abbreviations; punctuation; capitals; italics; dates, numbers, currency, and weights and measures; quotations and quotation marks; footnotes and endnotes; references, and so on.
