Important news about RefMe

It has been announced today that RefMe will be changing after March 7th, 2017.  This is sad news as it is a popular referencing tool especially with CHHS students.  Full details on this news can be found on the RefMe website but here are a few important issues to note:

  • RefMe is merging with CiteThisForMe
  • If you want to create an account for CiteThisForMe it will cost £6.99 a month, you will however be able to generate a reference list without making an account but it won’t save for future use.
  • If you have a RefMe account you will still have access to your account and saved Reference lists until June 1st, 2017, but you will need to export them before this date or you will lose them.

If you have any concerns about  this news please do get in touch with us, our contact details can be found on our Library Guides pages.

Are fathers providing more childcare than 15 years ago? New estimates from ONS

Well, only if their youngest child is pre-school age, according to the latest estimates from the Office of National Statistics (ONS). Overall fathers’ time spent on childcare has actually fallen by 2 minutes per day.  The ONS also looked at time spent by parents on “developmental care”. There was a noticeable increase in line with parental levels of education.

For those in their fifties and above, the average amount of time spent caring for adults has greatly increased. 15% increase for males, and 21% increase for females. Oh, and women still do most of the chores!

This information comes from: Changes in the value and division of unpaid care work in the UK: 2000 to 2015 which has just (1oth Nov. 2016) been published by the ONS and is available from their website.  The article presents estimates of the amount and value of informal child and adult care with analyses by sociodemographic variables including sex, age, and labour market status. This is the first in a series of releases that will examine the value and division of unpaid household work.

For those studying Early Childhood Studies & Social Policy, you will find a lot of interesting data here.
