Physiotherapy Subject Guide

This subject guide will support you in finding and using the resources needed throughout your degree in Physiotherapy.

Managing Information

Once you have found and gathered evidence to use in your work, you need to be able to manage that information. This page offers guidance on how to organise and reference information.

Managing your references

Referencing

You are expected to include citations and references in your academic work. You should familiarise yourself with your course's chosen referencing style.

Login with your university login at Cite them right online to guide you through the referencing process.

See our Harvard referencing guide - PDF for tips on how to reference common sources such as books, journals and websites.

 


Reference Management

When you find lots of information for your assignments and topics it can be difficult to keep track of all your sources. Using reference management software such as RefWorks, available to all university students, can help you to:

  • collect references - no need to type details in manually
  • store references in a web account or on your desktop
  • organise references
  • add notes to your references
  • link to full text, web pages and documents
  • cite your references and create bibliographies in different styles

You can access RefWorks through the University subscription with your SGUL credentials. Go to www.refworks.com/ to sign in. See our online guides on Refworks and Reference Management and Understanding Your Reading List for more information.

Managing your notes

Take notes, create to-do lists, and save things you find online into Evernote or Onenote, and access all in one place.

Managing your documents

Office365 Students can download free copies of Microsoft Office apps on up to 5 devices.  Includes Word, Excel and PowerPoint and can be backed up on OneDrive. See our instructions on how to download (university login required).
