Citing information: Overview

Overview: Citing information

When you write a paper or a thesis you have to include in-text citations or footnotes and a bibliography: your readers have to be able to see which sources you used. Making correct references can be a lot of work, but there are tools available to help you with this - reference managers.

In this guide you see how you can use a particular reference manager - RefWorks -:

  • to collect the information needed to make correct references
  • to manage your references 
  • to create 'stand-alone' bibliographies and 
  • to create in-text citations or footnotes in your own document.

Audience

Prospective students, undergraduates, and pre-masters.
