Reference Managers: New RefWorks

Supporting students who want to manage their references and easily create in text citations and reference lists

New RefWorks: getting started

New Refworks is an updated version of the traditional or legacy Refworks with a more user friendly interface and several new functions. Try and see the difference. New Refworks has the look-and-feel of Mendeley, but it is all cloud-based, without a desktop version. 

To begin, sign up for a new account at the link above. You'll need to allow pop-ups and cookies in your browser for New RefWorks to work properly.

For a series of short, introductory videos, they are on YouTube here

With New RefWorks, you can automatically import your citations with just the click of a button!  Look for the "export" button, and choose RefWorks, and they will be added to your citation list. 

Below is a short collection of videos showing you how easy it is!

RefWorks also has Write-n-Cite, which is a plugin for Microsoft Word. It allows you to add citations to your paper as you write it, using any citation style you prefer, and easily add a "works cited" page at the end! More information here:
