In this course I teach you the principles and practices of academic referencing as well as tips and tricks that I learnt from doing my own PhD. Although I struggled with referencing initially, I eventually figured it out and you can benefit from my experience, hopefully much earlier in your degree than me. There's two main sections to this course; in the first section I teach you what you need to know and in the second section I show you what you need to know by walking you through the different tools. I can't promise to make referencing fun and enjoyable but I promise that I've put my knowledge and skills about this topic into this course so that you can get the maximum benefit as well.

You will benefit from this course by becoming better at referencing and that will help you successfully complete your degree. Achieve this by completing this course and learning about the following.

  • The EndNote workspace and the key features that you will need to use

  • How to use Google Scholar to access the citation info for any reference and quickly bring it in to EndNote

  • The academic referencing system and how it organises the world's primary knowledge source

  • Different referencing styles, how and why they differ and how to quickly switch between them using Word and EndNote

  • How to manually set up all the reference information you need in EndNote

  • How to set up Word so that you can easily cite as you write and automatically add a citation to the reference list at the end of your document

  • Referencing with LaTex and how you can quickly incorporate EndNote reference information

  • Why referencing can be frustrating for students and in some cases cause them to procrastinate or even delay their entire degree

  • The EndNote star rating system and why that's a simple but powerful feature that will save you lots of time

  • How the citation information contains certain attributes that can be combined to always find the same document

  • Develop efficient habits that help you cite and reference using these tools so that you don't break your writing flow

  • The importance of sorting out your EndNote reference library so that it saves you time when you need it

Take advantage of how I learned by working it out, avoid wasting your time but rather learn from what I can teach you in this course.

Some great tips on managing EndNote. Very helpful and definitely worth a look if you are new to referencing.

It is a nice, quite fast, and comprehensive course. The main disadvantage is that the EndNote launched recently the newest version, a bit different than the one presented in the course. Therefore, 4.5, not 5. :)
