What is RefWorks?
RefWorks is a Web-based bibliography database manager that allows you to collect, organize and manage a personal database of book and article citations.
With RefWorks you can:
- Create bibliographies using a wide choice of citation styles including APA, Chicago Manual of Style, MLA, etc.
- Export references from article databases into your Refworks database;
- Generate in-text citations and bibliographies as you type your documents.
RefWorks users can share citations and folders via new RefShare feature! See RefShare Overview and the RefShare Tutorial for more on how to share RefWorks citations and bibliographies with colleagues.
RefWorks has an additional feature called Write-N-Cite which allows you to cite the references stored in your RefWorks account while you are typing your research paper in MS Word. RefWorks will insert the citation in your paper as well as create a bibliography for your paper in the citation format you have selected.
For more information about Write-N-Cite see our Write-N-Cite Help page.
