1. Simple/Web/Server style for OSCOLA

This style shows all journal citations with parentheses (round brackets) around the year - some journal citations need to be modified after field codes have been removed (see OSCOLA guide for more information). Unlike the more complex OSCOLA 2 style, which is recommended for writers using their own computers, this style can be used without uploading a new 'RefTypeTable'.

2. OSCOLA 2 for personal computers

This OSCOLA style is a continuation of the OSCOLA-Lite styles. Libraries created using OSCOLA-Lite should work with OSCOLA 2. This style has customised reference types for cases and journals, which means it is essential to import the RefTypeTable to use these reference types properly.
