Forthcoming: Referencing for Genealogists: Sources and Citation

Is there a particularly British way for a genealogist to cite a source?
Publisher The History Press Ltd must think so as they will release this new book on 1 May.
A paperback of 144 pages the author is Ian G. Macdonald, BSc. PhD MSc.(Genealogical Studies) PGCE CITP CEng FBCS MIoD. The postnominals are from his listing at Chair of The Register of Qualified Genealogists (RQG).
As the organization's mission is "to improve standards of professional genealogical practice and deliver these improvements to customers for genealogical and family history services" this book is most appropriate.
According to this post "fees from the book will go directly to the Journal of Genealogy and Family History so buying a copy will be doubly beneficial to RQG."
The book is listed on Amazon.ca here.
