Introducing Cite Them Right: referencing made simple

Referencing is most people’s least favourite part of researching and writing an assignment.  Tedious, pedantic and seemingly comprised of the wreckage left by a violent collision between a number of different rulesets, referencing systems seem to be designed to cost you marks.  Thankfully, we now have online tools that show you exactly how to present your in-text citations and the full references in your reference list so that you never have to struggle to apply long lists of nonsensical rules to put together your references.  You can now just copy the examples and rest assured that what you have done will be right!
