For psychology programmes, the Psychology department has its own guide to referencing which you should find on your programme or module pages in Course Resources.

For other information and examples which may not be included in the department guide, please see the other tabs.

If you are using the Harvard style of referencing then you should use Cite Them Right for guidance.

Cite them right is well-known resource which gives examples and guidance on referencing. It has examples for a variety of different referencing 'styles' including Harvard and the American Psychological Association (APA) system (if you are doing any psychology modules then you may be asked to use the APA referencing style for assignments within that module.)

The link above will take you to the online, web-page based version of Cite Them Right which, due to it's online nature, is likely to be to the most up to date version of the text.

The library also has print copies of the book and also an eBook version i.e. an exact copy of the print version of the book of the same edition.

You can find them by searching for Cite Them Right via the Library Search

Referencing management tools can help you keep track of, store, organise and manage your references. You can use them to create bibliographies in a variety of referencing styles. They are particularly useful when completing large assignments such as dissertations when you are likely to be using more literature. The university has a subscription to EndNote Referencing Software and you can access this via the software section on course resources. 

The following video is a useful introduction to EndNote

There is also a separate Referencing Software Guide which contains information and links to resources about using EndNote as well as other referencing software and apps such as Mendeley and Zotero.
