Check out the Library's referencing advice which covers why, when and how to reference your sources.

The Library provides some useful tools to  help with managing and formatting your references.

The Cite Them Right website is the key resource if you have questions about referencing and covers a range of different referencing styles:


The reference management tool supported at Bristol is Endnote. 

Undergraduates and taught postgraduates in the Dental School are advised to use Endnote Online, and will get training from the Subject Librarian in using this. Endnote Desktop is recommended for staff and postgraduate research students.


Dental students should check their Dental School course handbook to find out which referencing styles to use for their coursework, or ask their supervisors for advice. There is no one standard style used across the University, as different publications use different styles and we want Bristol students to be able to use different styles as required.
