Studiosity Information for Staff

What is Studiosity?

Studiosity, the new 24/7 service for our students, is here. This is a free online service providing on-demand study skills help to students any time anywhere, on or off-campus. The service extends our support by being available when other help is not eg during the evenings, at weekends, holiday periods.  Students can interact with the Studiosity up to ten times in each academic year.

How can Studiosity help me?

 The Service offers:

  • Writing feedback where Students can upload their work at any time of day or night, and receive feedback within 24 hours. The feedback they receive is intended to help with their academic writing skills at an early stage by indicating areas for improvement related to structure, writing style, language use, spelling and grammar. It does not deal with content.
  • 'Connect Live' option where students can receive live support in areas including basic English, maths and stats, science and generic study skills via online chat and a collaborative whiteboard service.

Studiosity works alongside the existing advice and help already provided by the Academic Achievement Team. Please encourage your students to use Studiosity as a stepping stone for submitting a first draft in good time so that they can:

  • consider the feedback and, if needed, come to an AA Team appointment to discuss how to apply this
  • or bring to a meeting with their Academic Guidance Tutor


  • an area of difficulty may have been identified which can be addressed in one of the AA team’s workshops (see workshops and events calendar on the Library home page)
  • or online with more detailed guidance and/or interactive resources on the Learning Skills Hub  

Where can students find Studiosity?

Students can find the Studiosity link on their Moodle dashboard page and on the Library home page, bottom right.

Cite Them Right


The Academic Engagement Team are currently working with Schools/Faculty to roll out Cite Them Right within all Undergraduate and Postgraduate programmes. It is anticipated that all programmes will move to Cite Them Right in September 2022. If you would like to make use of Cite Them Right now within your module/programme, please contact Academic Engagement Team who will be able to add a link to the platform and a separate plug in directly to the Turtorial to your module/programme Moodle site.

What is Cite Them Right? 

Cite Them Right is a web based comprehensive guide to referencing almost any source material students will come across. We are currently running a soft launch for non-Harvard styles as they are applied in a standard way across institutions.

As you are aware we have Roehampton Harvard and would like to transition to the generic 11th edition Harvard used on Cite Them Right.

There are minimal differences between the two e.g. Roehampton Harvard does not have single quotation marks around the journal article title. Cite Them Right example below:

Norrie, C., Hammond, J., D'Avray, L., Collington, V. and Fook, J. (2012) 'Doing it differently? A review of literature on teaching reflective practice across health and social care professions', Reflective Practice, 13(4), pp. 565–578.


Advantages of using Cite Them Right

  • Easy to use search function that replicates a Google like searching experience that students are familiar with,
  • Much more comprehensive than our existing PDF guidance and removes need for academics to update referencing guidance on Moodle,
  • Includes a comprehensive interactive tutorial on referencing and plagiarism including:
    • What is referencing and why it matters
    • What sources are appropriate to reference
    • How to avoid plagiarism
    • How to insert citations into your text
    • Incorporating the work of others into your writing
    • Documenting the full reference details
  • Ability to have Cite Them Right Tutorial plug in added to Moodle Programme and Module sites for increased student awareness.

Please Note:

We will work with Partnerships and Link Tutors regarding the current set up for referencing guidance.

We will keep versions of the Roehampton Harvard available for Postgraduate Research students who are midway through completing their study.
