One of the biggest challenges with any research project is keeping your research studies, articles, and citations organized so you can access and cite them when needed. RefWorks greatly simplifies that process. RefWorks is an online tool for organizing, storing, and sharing citations.
Other useful resources for working with Refworks include short video tutorials on specific topics, and a seven-page, printable Quick Start Guide that provides a handy reference. While RefWorks is primarily a biblographic citation manager, you can also use it to store your full-text documents by attaching them to the individual item record while in edit mode.
Please Note! RefWorks is a wonderful tool to save you a lot of time when you need it the most, but it is no substitute for the human mind. You will need to carefully proofread any citations generated for errors, especially capitalization mistakes.
