UWS has adopted the Harvard style of referencing. Guidelines on applying this style in both your text and reference lists appear in the Referencing mini-website on MyUWSLibrary. UWS staff and students should access this by selecting MyUWSLibrary from the Moodle Quicklinks menu then choosing Referencing and clicking on Referencing Guide. For those without access to UWS Moodle, the main elements can be viewed in PDF form below.

SFX helps you find full-text journal articles. You can use SFX to:
In online databases click on the "full text" or "PDF" link to read journal articles.
If there is no full text/PDF link in the database use the SFX button to check if the journal article is available from a different source.
The message “no electronic fulltext available for this item” means that UWS does not purchase electronic access to the article. You should click on the “Holdings in University of the West of Scotland catalogue” link to check for paper copies of your article.
If the article is not available electronically or on paper university staff, postgraduates and some undergraduates can use the Inter Library Loan service to obtain copies of articles.
