Writing your assessment - support

Charles Sturt University also has other services which can help you to get the best possible results for your work:

  • Turnitin Software - A Turnitin account allows you to check your own writing for inadvertent plagiarism or quotation errors.  Detect and fix problems before submission. Some assessments will require you to submit your work to Turnitin before final submission! 
  • Access support guides and advice to help you understand and prepare for your assignments in the Learning Skills section of the Student Portal.
  • The Study Success Forum is an ideal place to post those vexing questions about assignment writing techniques. Find it in Interact2 > Study Success > Discussion.
  • Why not attend an Academic Skills workshop online to enhance or refresh your academic writing skills.
  • Make an appointment with an Academic Skills adviser for personal help seven days a week.

what is referencing?

What is EndNote?

EndNote is a software that you can use to manage your references. You can use it to:

  • store, manage, group, and format your references;
  • create reference lists
  • insert in-text citations and reference lists in Word documents;
  • attach the PDFs of articles to references

Please note

  • EndNote cannot replace having a good knowledge of referencing. You still need to know how to reference!
  • As with any software, you need to learn how to use it.

The Library can help you with downloading, installing, and using Endnote.

The best place to start to learn about EndNote is the Library's EndNote Library Guide.
