RefWorks (ProQuest)

Other Referencing Tools

There are many other free referencing tools that you could use such as Mendeley, Zotero and more.  

Please check whether any alternative tool provides access to our approved institutional style, Harvard Solent (previously Harvard SSU).  APA 7 should be consistent over all alternatives.

You will need to ensure that the data needed for each reference is entered correctly in the referencing tool.  References that are exported/imported into a referencing tool may contain or produce errors - even if you are using RefWorks.  Therefore it is important to check that the imported data is both accurate and in the correct fields whichever referencing tool you use.  This will help produce a more accurate reference list or bibliography.

You should always check and edit your references, as they are created, to match the Harvard Solent referencing guidance (or other style as appropriate), and before submitting your assignment.
