Guide to managing your references

You might also want to have a look at the Bodleian Libraries' guide to managing your references (put together by staff at the RSL).

RefWorks - reference management software

RefWorks is an online research management tool that will let you - amongst other things - generate citations and bibliographies.

The Bodleian Libraries has a subscription to RefWorks, so any member of the University can create an account.

If you would like to find out more about this service, you can have a look at the Bodleian Libraries RefWorks webpage or go straight to the RefWorks homepage and start exploring.

N.B. If you want to access your account from outside the Oxford domain, you will need to input the Oxford "Group Code" before being presented with the RefWorks login page. You can access the Group Code here using your Oxford University SSO username and password.

Plagiarism - please be careful

The University has produced a short guide to what constitutes plagiarism, and how to avoid it: http://www.admin.ox.ac.uk/edc/goodpractice/about/

You can also find a useful annotated guide to some of the more common types of unoriginal work in this guide created by Turnitin:
