OSCOLA referencing guide (Online): Podcasts & Youtube videos

Mae'r dudalen hon hefyd ar gael yn Gymraeg

Podcasts & YouTube

To create a reference to a Podcast, YouTube video or similar sources, you need to include the Author and the title in single speech marks, followed by the broadcast date in brackets, the URL and the access date.

Format: Author, 'Title' (broadcast date) <URl> accessed date

Examples: Dr Douglas Guilfoyle, 'The UN Convention on the Law of the Sea: Origins and Importance' (14 August 2013) <> accessed 15 April 2014.

British Medical Journal podcast, 'Insanity in the Dock' (20 July 2012) <> accessed 15 April 2014.

You can also add the minutes and seconds of the relevant excerpt of the podcast or video to the reference to build a pinpoint. These would be added after the broadcast date.

There is no change in format between a footnote reference and a bibliography entry except that with the bibliography the last name comes first.
