Reference management: RefWorks

Legacy RefWorks (old version)

RefWorks logo

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. Click your university's link if you want to use Legacy RefWorks!
