Manufacturing & Materials: Reference Management

Reference Management Software

Reference Management Software

Reference management software helps you keep track of your citations as you work and and then helps you generate in-text citations and reference lists/bibliographies in different referencing styles when it's time to publish. The University subscribes to two products: RefWorks and EndNote​.

 
New RefWorks

A web-based solution that can help you to:

  • Easily organise and manage references from a range of sources.
  • Straightforwardly create lists of references (or bibliographies), in the correct format, for use in your research.

Take a look at the Step by Step guide to New RefWorks at the bottom of this page.


EndNote

A desktop solution, downloadable from Apps Anywhere, and which can be installed onto any university owned PC or laptop. It can help you to:

  • Easily organise and manage references from a range of sources.
  • Straightforwardly create lists of references (or bibliographies), in the correct format, for use in your research.
  • Organise references for major pieces of work, including systematic reviews.
Other tools

As well as RefWorks and EndNote there are a number of freely available solutions that you may wish to use if you feel they are the best fit for your research. For further advice contact your Librarian, Sue Marshall. Contact details are on the right-hand side of this page.
