Managing Your References / Refworks 

  • Managing References - what, where, why and how?

    What is it?

    Whilst studying at university you will need to refer to information from books, websites, journals and other sources in your assignments. You must acknowledge or ‘cite’ this information in your work and include full details in your list of references and bibliography. It will save you time if you are organised about saving the references that you find. RefWorks is an online reference management tool that can help you with this activity.

    Where does it fit in the Vitae Research Development Framework?

    Information Seeking (RDF A1)

    Why should you do it?

    Managing your references will save you time and help you feel more in control of your literature searching. RefWorks can create your bibliography automatically.
