Resource of the Week: Cite Them Right

Cite them right online is a useful guide for citing and referencing.. There are instructions on how to construct citations and lots of examples of a range of sources to help you format your reference lists.

There is a toolbar at the top of the screen for you to browse, or you can search for what you need using the search box.

Remember to always check with your school if they have a preferred referencing style. If not, we suggest using the Harvard style set out in the guide.

Did you know: The ‘Harvard HWU Cite Them Right’ style in EndNote is based on the instructions and examples given by this guide. If you’ve not been told to use another style, we recommend you use this one.

Access the site through the Database A-Z List or through the Discovery home page.

Guides and More Information 

There are a couple of videos about Cite Them Right on the Palgrave Macmillan YouTube Channel

The guide is based on the book ‘Cite them right‘, which is available from the Library (Edinburgh campus also has copies of the 10th edition, published in 2016).

Each campus runs Power Hours on citing and referencing – for more information, go to the Information Services website. All the materials from these sessions are also available under the My Organisations section of Vision.

You can also always ask a Librarian at
