Referencing guide

Referencing software

There are some recommended bibliographic management software tools which are free to download. They are useful tools to help students and researchers collate and manage citations and references. They will generate references (bibliographies) in the required style.

Students and researchers of the Faculty of Asian and Middle Eastern Studies are recommended to use ZOTERO which can handle vernacular scripts. We offer training in using this bibliographic management software tool throughout the academic year.

For further assistance please contact the subjects specialist librarian.
