There are lots of referencing tools available that will help format your references for you. Simple citation tools include:
- the citation tool which is part of LibrarySearch
- the citation tool which is part of Google Scholar
If you use any referencing tool, remember:
- there's no guarantee any referencing tool will be accurate. Always check your referencing before submitting your work to ensure all the relevant parts of the reference have been included, in the right order, and formatted correctly.
- if you're using Harvard, not every referencing tool will format according to Cite Them Right Harvard which is the version we use at Abertay. Again, check and edit your references before submitting your work.
