Referencing introduction

You need to reference all the sources that you use in your assignments - this includes citing them in the main body of your assignment (an in-text reference) and compiling a full reference list at the end of your work.

RefWorks

RefWorks is software that allows you to easily store and generate references you have found during your research in the correct style. Use it to:

  • export references from eResources and the library catalogue
  • generate your in-text references and a final reference list
