RefWorks: New RefWorks

Links and help information regarding RefWorks

New and Old RefWorks

A new version of RefWorks (called New RefWorks) has been launch and will run parallel to the current or old version (called Legacy RefWorks). 

  • If you just beginning with RefWorks, start an account in New RefWorks. 
  • If you are a Legacy RefWorks user, you can create a New RefWorks account and migrate your references into it.  You can use both accounts up until January 1, 2018 when the Legacy RefWorks will be retired.  NOTICE:  the two accounts are not linked or interchangeable; read the information below before proceeding.

Which version of RefWorks should I Choose?

New to RefWorks?

  • Legacy RefWorks will cease to exist on January 1, 2018 so new users should begin with New RefWorks

Already a RefWorks user?

  • You can use your Legacy RefWorks account until January 1, 2018 when it will cease to exist.
  • You can create a New RefWorks Account and migrate your references from Legacy RefWorks.
  • WARNING!  Both versions use Write-N-Cite but are not interchangeable...documents begun in one version of RefWorks must be completed in that version. 
    • Don't start a long-term project (e.g. dissertations) in Legacy Refworks if it won't be completed by January 1, 2018.

Mac User? 

  • Write-N-Cite does not work with Word 2016.  Instead you will need to use an add-in called "RefWorks Citation Manager."  You can download "RefWorks Citation Manager" from the Microsoft Office Store
