RefWorks

RefWorks is a research management tool you can use to create bibliographies, format footnotes, and organize information that you import from the library's databases and other online sources. Footnotes and bibliographies created with RefWorks are only as good as the information you import. You will still need to edit some references. For help with that, refer to the library's guide to citing sources.

 

Which version should I use?

  • I'm new to RefWorks
    We recommend using the New RefWorks. It has a modern design, plus many new enhancements.
  • I already have a Legacy RefWorks account
    Legacy RefWorks and new RefWorks can be used in tandem. You can create an account in the New RefWorks and experiment with the new version; your legacy account will be unaffected. Or you can continue using the legacy version, which will be available until late 2017.

Citation Guides

The resources listed below can be particularly helpful. The Chemistry and Physics Departments generally follow guidelines from either the AIP Style Manual or the ACS Style Guide.  Ask your professor if he or she prefers a particular citation style, and consult the library's guide to citing sources for additional resources.

If you need more help, don't hesitate to ask a librarian.
