Legacy RefWorks (old version)

The old version of RefWorks will cease working on the 31st of December 2018. It is not possible to change the version of RefWorks (Write-n-cite) in the middle of a text. Use this version until the text is finished and then change to the new version. You need to create a new user account in the new version.
