What is RefWorks?

RefWorks is a citation manager that will make it easier for you to organize your citations and use them in your research papers and projects.

RefWorks can be used in 3 ways:

  1. Use RefWorks to manage your citations and references. Create Folders for each course or each subject you research.
  2. Use the bibliography function to automatically create a references list or a bibliography in any citation style.
  3. Use the Write-N-Cite function to automatically create in-text citations. The program will also use those in-text citations to automatically create a bibliography.
