Citations & Referencing


What is RefWorks?

RefWorks is a bibliographic management tool that enables you to create and organise your own personal database of references and citations. You can use RefWorks to add citations while you write a paper and format the paper in the referencing style you choose, adding both in-text references and a bibliography to your paper.

RefWorks is web-based so it is available at any time, from any computer with an Internet connection. It can be used with all major web browsers and is compatible with multiple platforms, including Windows, Mac and Unix.
