Nature is ranked as the most highly cited interdisciplinary scientific journal in the world. Articles published in Nature from 1997 onwards are available via Summon, but if you want to access the most recent issue you should visit the Nature website.

Either browse content by date of publication, or use the 'advanced search' to ensure you are viewing articles which appear in Nature (we don't subscribe to the other titles from Nature Publishing Group)

Printed volumes of Nature (from 1895-2006) are available in the mobile shelving on floor 5 of the Library.

RSC referencing

The University of Huddersfield use APA 6th to reference. If you are doing chemistry, you may be asked to reference in the RSC style. Please ask your lecturers for more information about this as the library and academic skills tutors will be unable to advise you. You may also find this PDF useful which is based on the author guidelines for RSC
