Managing your references

Reference management software (also known as "citation managers" or "bibliographic management software") can help you:

  • store and organise your references relating to your research and writing
  • generate citations and bibliographies in your preferred referencing style
  •  maintain academic integrity and avoid plagiarism.

There are a number of different programs available, so choose the one that suits your needs.

UOW has a license to access EndNote, and we can help you learn how to use EndNote to simplify your researching.


Understanding copyright is essential when you need to reproduce other people’s work, for example, using tables, images, data, diagrams etc.

You'll also rely on copyright or creative commons licenses to protect any work you create.
