An omnidoxical reference is a citation from the Omnidoxy usually referenced using the indexment system which forms the structure of the text. Unlike in other forms of religious textual citation, the textual philophon is always used followed by the disquisition number, the discourse number, and the insentensation number, an example of which would be: Omni 1:10:12.

However, there is also another type of omnidoxical reference which is more specific to a disquisition (hence it being called a disquisitional reference) and instead uses the textual philophon for a disquisition and rids the reference of the disquisitional number leaving only the discourse and insentensation numbers. An example of this type of omnidoxical reference applied to the same example reads as follows: Mono 10:12. Both forms of reference are acceptable in both scholarly and non-academic writing.

If a person wishes to reference a series of insentensations in a discourse then they would use the disquisitional reference type and would result in the following style: Mono 10:12-16. Another common omnidoxical referencing requirement involving wanting to reference an entire disquisition. To do this, a person would use the standard omnidoxical reference and would result in the following: Omni 1:10. Again, if a person wishes to reference a multitude of discourses, although this is not recommended due to the vastness of some discourses in terms of referential relevancy, they could create the following reference: Omni 1:10-12.

More rare requirements for omnidoxical referencing include an intervallic reference which involves referencing two individual or two sets of insentensations as part of the same reference. For this reference type, the disquisitional reference style should be applied resulting in the following: Mono 1:10-12,14-16. It remains important that no spaces are left between the comma and the second set of insentensations. Another variation for a single intervallic reference would result as follows: Mono 1:10-12,14.
