Need help with referencing?

Citing your sources correctly is an essential academic skill, but it can often be quite daunting.  The library has lots of help and advice on how to avoid plagiarism, and how to reference correctly.  Check out the Information Skills Resource for tutorials of the referencing style for your department.

There are a number of referencing management programmes that can help you to organise and format your references.

The Library supports the use of Endnote Web.  Endnote Web allows you to import references from online databases such as Web of Knowledge and Scopus, access them from any computer, and add them to your word documents as you write.   Endnote Web is free for all University of Sheffield students - find out more on the Information Skills Resource.

An alternative Reference managent software is Mendeley.  This is a free web-based programme that offers similar features to Endnote Web.  Have a look at the video tutorials available on their website.
