Referencing at Newman: RefWorks

Referencing - introduction, in-text citations, reference list examples, RefWorks and how you can get more help

What is RefWorks?

RefWorks is an advanced online tool which will help you to manage your references. You can use it to:

  • create reference lists and reference list entries in Newman Harvard, OSCOLA and APA styles
  • store and organise the sources you use in your assignments
  • read, take notes and manage your reading and sources

We recommend RefWorks to students at level 6 (3rd year undergraduates) and above who have a good understanding of our referencing style.
