Cite this article

Writers and academics use citations to tell users that certain material in their work came from another source.  

We need to include a “Cite this article “section in our articles. This will help writers and academics to find the information they need, and cite our releases accurately and consistently. 

The “Cite this release” section will be the final section of the article and included in the table of contents. It needs to be formatted as:  

X. Cite this article 

Office for National Statistics (ONS), released XX Month 20XX, ONS website, content type, Title: edition with link embedded 

Do not include a citation in a digital content article, as these are aimed at inquiring citizens rather than academics and expert users.
