The aim of referencing is to let your readers know which sources you have used for your work.
There are several ways of referencing. A few of the most widely used styles are APA, Harvard, Vancouver etc. If you're not sure which style to use, please contact your department or teacher.
When using a reference management tool such as RefWorks, your references are presented automatically according to the citation style of your choice. You won't have to enter your references manually.
