BCU Harvard Style in EndNote

Library staff have worked with colleagues in IT, Centre for Academic Success and staff at Clarivate Analytics to add the BCU Harvard Style to EndNote reference management software.

This means students and staff can now select BCU Harvard as an output style from within the desktop and web versions of EndNote. An EndNote plugin for word processing software will then allow users to produce reference lists and bibliographies automatically in the format used by the University.

If you want further information about BCU’s referencing guidelines visit here.

If you want training on how to use EndNote Web, IT offer workshops, check out their schedule for further details.
