Harvard-UniSA style

RefWorks includes the AGPS Press - Style Manual, 6th Edition style, which is based on the same specifications as the recommended Harvard-UniSA style.

Get it via RefWorks menu > Bibliography > Output Style Manager, and make it a Favourite.


Remember when referencing the style manual is the authority not EndNote.

If you have any issues with referencing check the style's official  manual or guide.

What is RefWorks?

RefWorks is a web-based bibliography and database manager. It allows you to create your own personal research database by importing citations and references from the library catalogue, online databases, text files and other various sources. You can use these references in writing papers and automatically format the paper and the bibliography in seconds.
