Lightbulb How do i reference this? (BPS, Psychology)

http://www.bps.org.uk/the-society/code-of-conduct/

Trying to reference the 'Code of Conduct 2006' in the BPS format...ironically enough but i can't seem to gather enough information about the text so i'm a bit confused? No author? And the town? Would it be done as a journal? A book?

Assuming you mean in Harvard style:

British Psychology Society, (2009). Code of Conduct 2006 [Online]. Available from http://www.bps.org.uk/the-society/code-of-conduct/ [Accessed: 1 April 2009].

That's referencing as an online document/paper.

BPS is effectively the author of the document, not the style.

There are loads of styles of referencing, Harvard is probably the most common one, so I'd go with that for now and ask your tutor when you next see them.

Main differences between BPS and Harvard? Looks right though...

BPS doesn't have a 'style' as such. Harvard is a style of referencing. BPS is like a Journal title or something.

Um...i'm certain there is a BPS and also an APA style of referencing...we have been informed we are to use the BPS. I'm asking how it is different to Harvard.

Apologies in that case, I had no idea there was a BPS referencing style, the boss uses Harvard style when she writes her papers, and she's doing a Psychology degree. I thought you were just getting yourself confused

In this case, definetly check with your tutor before you hand it in

Edit: A quick google finds this guide to BPS style, if you want to give it a look.

Yeah sorry, this has thrown me. Thought Harvard was the norm, even in Psychology.

It's just an online version of a BPS publication, so you could more tidily get away with:

British Psychological Society (2006) Code of Ethics and Conduct. Leicester: British Psychological Society.

or otherwise:

British Psychological Society (2006) Code of Ethics and Conduct. Retrieved 1st April 2009, from http://www.bps.org.uk/the-society/code-of-conduct/

In any case, this:

Would be wrong. The publication year for that document is 2006, not 2009 - it is the year of publication you cite in those brackets, not the year you accessed something online.
