What is RefWorks?

RefWorks is a web-based bibliography and database manager. It allows you to create your own personal research database by importing citations and references from the library catalogue, online databases, text files and other various sources. You can use these references in writing papers and automatically format the paper and the bibliography in seconds.

Why should I use RefWorks?

  • RefWorks helps you to keep track of your references and to format your documents
  • It is web-based; you can use it anywhere there is an internet connection
  • It is easy to learn the basic features; more advanced features may take a bit more time to learn 
  • You can use the RefShare feature to share your references with colleagues

When should I use RefWorks?

  • RefWorks is useful for your own research. Use it as you start your reading to collect details of the articles and books you read
  • RefWorks is great for collaborative work:
    • You can create as many separate RefWorks accounts as you like. You can create a shared account where all colleagues who need to use it share a login and password. All members of the shared account can add references
    • You can use RefShare to let others see the references in any RefWorks account that you control
