    Not sure about how you're supposed to do it specifically for Computing but in other subjects you just have a section at the end where you put all your references in a list (Well that's what I would do anyway)

    Hope that helps!

    I would recommend you using the harvard referencing style. *Check google*
    It is a well known and respected style which many university students use.

    But since it is simply GCSE you are doing, you can get away by using the automatically generated bibliography method in microsoft word.
    I used it for my practical investigation and I got full marks by my teacher so I don't think there is any problems associated with it.

    I was thinking more about websites because that's what I've been using more for my work but yeah. Although the automatically generated bibliography method (see below) sounds much better and (from searching it in google) it looks better and more professional
