Hi, I’m confident I’ve referenced correctly and the content is generally alright but I realised I didn’t put the location of the publishing books in my bibliography? I feel silly not taking this into account, should I worry or will they not deduct too many marks for it. Thanks.

HI,
I'm a current PhD History Student at Hull
I know that there have been occasions where I have been unable to find a location for publications with some of the works which I have used (usually Palgrave Macmillan as well as few others) and so I have had gaps in my bibliography where its referenced as publisher and year and I don't believe I have been marked down for it.
Whilst I don't know which university you are at, so, therefore, can't advise how they mark pieces of work, I would advise that so long as it is generally referenced with the publisher and year you should be ok.
My advice would be that if you are worried to check your mark scheme if you were provided with one as that should include how they mark referencing.
Hope this is helpful/slightly reassuring
Emily

Hiya, just wanted to know whether you get marked down for missing references in bibliography, when there is an in text citation. Seems that I have missed out three references from my biblio, of a 12,000 word dissertation with 170 references. Quite stressed as I've also spotted some missing commas in other references (Harvard style)??

Not all referencing styles require you to put the location of the publisher, so you're probably fine anyway.

Agree with the above, whether you need the location depends on your referencing style. Maybe look at the reference guide for your system e.g. Harvard referencing guide. Your university may also have a specific referencing guide so that’s worth looking out for too.
