Checklist for references
This checklist can help you check the citations in your text and your reference list, for example before submitting a written work. The checklist is intended as a complement to the information about references available on our web pages.
On the pages about academic writing, you can read more about how to integrate citations in your own text. In the reference guides for APA and Vancouver you can find more detailed information on how to format the both the citations and the reference list.
Choose one guide as your primary source when writing references. If there are no instructions for a specific question, you can use other guides as a complement. Then use primarily the guides we recommend for the APA and Vancouver style.
Endnote Online and other reference management software are useful tools that facilitate the reference management. However, you will still need to make sure the references are formatted according to the reference style you use.
