Citing and referencing

Everything you need to know about referencing with links to guides and support.

RefWorks is an online research management tool that allows you to collect and organize resources that can be cited in your research paper. These citations may then be shared, inserted into papers, or automatically added to bibliographies in multiple citation styles.

RefWorks is available to UOB faculty, students, staff, and alumni through a UOB Libraries subscription.
