Referencing guidance for Nursing and ODP students starting courses in March 2017

This section of the RefZone site is for Nursing and ODP students who started their course in March 2017.

We have made some changes to Staffordshire University Harvard referencing in relation to Reference Lists/Bibliographies. Please use the document below for guidance on how to reference the types of materials which you are most likely to use.

If you cannot find the type of resource you have used listed please contact us on for further guidance.


RefWorks is a reference management tool which will help you organise and store references that you have used to support your assignments. RefWorks also creates bibliographies online from your references.

A new version of RefWorks is available and we have created an online guide to help you make best use of this tool.  This includes videos to demonstrate specific features within RefWorks.

The video below will help you to get started using RefWorks.
