Referencing

  • Need a little help with referencing? The business librarians are running referencing workshops on the following dates:

    • Tuesday 25 February 12.00 - 13.00 in the Library's Forum training room, JHB G02
    • Thursday 27th February 12:00 - 13:00 in the Library's Forum training room, JHB G02
    The referencing workshops will provide an introduction to Harvard referencing and Cite Them Right. Please sign up using this online form to book your place.  
  • Citing your sources (also called referencing) is an essential part of your academic work and is explained fully in our library guide to referencing.

    The Business School uses the Brookes Harvard (all authors) style of referencing.

    Cite Them Right is a tool to help you with your referencing. It shows you how to reference a wide range of resources using exactly the same Harvard style used by the Business School; for that reason we recommend this over similar guides found online. Make sure you access Cite Them Right via the Library pages (not via Google) to get full access.

    Endnote is a tool for storing and organising your references, and it will also work with Word to create a fully formatted bibliography from your reference library. Begin by enrolling on the EndNote Web Moodle course which will help you to learn how to use it.

    If you have any questions about referencing, you can ask your tutor or your librarian.
