The RefWorks you know and love
has a NEW and IMPROVED version!
What hasn't changed: RefWorks is still an online research/citation management tool that allows you to collect, store, and manage information. With RefWorks, you can create your own database of references, export references from article databases, share citations, and generate in-text citations and bibliographies.
What has changed: RefWorks has a new user interface and some new features. For example, you can now save the entire full text of the item in RefWorks, allowing easier access to the articles themselves. You can also tag articles with custom and/or predetermined tags, and then search by those tags as needed.
When is all this happening? You can start using the new RefWorks now if you choose, or you can continue to use the legacy version until spring 2017 (exact date tbd). As with all recently introduced updates, changes and revisions are still happening but the basic functionality is set.
These questions will help you determine when (or if) you should start using the new blue RefWorks.
Does this mean that you might want to keep working in Legacy while you complete a project, and also have an account open in New for newer projects? Yes, you can do that.
This update to RefWorks is a new way to collect, manage and organize research papers and documents. You can read annotate, organize, and cite your research as well as collaborate with friends and colleagues by sharing collections.
RefWorks’ drag and drop capability along with our smart document recognition makes it easy and fast to upload documents and bibliographic metadata into your library and the Save to RefWorks feature allows you to capture research from websites with the click of a button.
From simple bibliographies to papers formatted with in-text citations or footnotes, RefWorks handles it all.
