Learning outcomes:

By the end of the course, you should be able to:

  • recognise the value of using reference management software (RMS) to keep track of reading materials and to enable effective and consistent referencing
  • recall key characteristics and web locations of various open source RMS packages to enable independent exploration of their features/functionality and determine applicability for personal use
  • apply key functionality within EndNote to effectively save, organise and edit references and to access a range of referencing styles
  • produce accurate and consistent in-text citations and reference lists / bibliographies within academic writing by linking EndNote to a word processing package
