Referencing introduction

In academic writing, it's essential that you cite (state) your sources of information and ideas. To ensure readers know where you found the information you must include references

You need to reference all the sources that you use in your assignments - by 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.

A number of guides are available to help you get to grips with referencing:

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
