RefWorks: Introduction

Introduction to RefWorks

As any researcher knows, engaging in academic research involves critical thinking, conducting thorough online research, and identifying appropriate sources to ensure that your work reflects your thoughts in a clear and coherent way.
A citation software can help you organize your journal article, book, or other document citations by collecting them together in one place to create properly formatted bibliographies in almost any style. It can enable you to:

  • import citations from your favorite databases, library catalog, e-journals and websites;
  • build and organize bibliographies;
  • format citations for papers;
  • take notes on articles and save them in your collection of citations.

RefWorks is a powerful online research management, writing and collaboration tool designed to help researchers of all levels easily gather, organize, store and share all types of information, and to instantly generate citations and bibliographies.
