Get your referencing under control, save your time and avoid losing marks with these practical referencing tips from the Library.
Know your referencing style
Check your subject and assignment outlines to determine which style you should be referencing in. Each style follows unique written conventions that need to be followed accurately.
Reference as you go
Create your reference list at the beginning of your research and update it accurately as you write your assignment. You’ll save on time and spare yourself the pain of trying to remember where you found each source at the end of your assignment.
Quick guides are your new best friend
Use the Library’s referencing guides to reference specific sources quickly and easily.
Save time with referencing tools
If you're a researcher working with a large number of sources referencing tools can help you collect, store, organise and output your references.
UTS students and staff have access to:
- RefWorks (best for most students and researchers), and
