RefWorks for Science and Engineering

Event Description

RefWorks is a bibliographic management service that enables you to create a personal database of references, automatically format citations and compile instant bibliographies. This can save you hours spent interpreting citing and referencing styles and typing citations and references.

  • Creating an account
  • Importing references directly from a database and a file
  • Inputting references manually
  • Creating folders and organizing references
  • Deleting duplicate records
  • Producing a bibliography in a Microsoft Word document
  • Using RefWorks with other bibliographic management services
