CSIRO style is an author-date citation style. The examples in this guide are based on the Australian Journal of Botany referencing style, published by the CSIRO. It does not represent a definitive guide to referencing using the CSIRO style.
There are two major components to the CSIRO style - the author-date citation within the text of the document, e.g. (Smith 2010), and the detailed reference list at the end of the document.
