  • Add citations to your word-processed document and create your bibliography in a number of citation styles

        EndNote online (Web) course

        Library staff run regular courses on EndNote online (web). The course is a practical introduction that covers all functionality available in the programme.


        Why you should reference

        • To avoid plagiarism - this is when you use someone's ideas or work without acknowledgment
        • To show the authority on which you base your arguments
        • To show how widely you have read
        • To enable others to find your sources

        When should you reference?

        You should include a reference every time you quote, paraphrase (i.e. write someone's information in your own words), summarise or gain ideas from another person's work.

        You should include a reference no matter what format the work takes (e.g. web page, journal article, email or diagram).
