What is RefWorks?

RefWorks is a web-based citation management tool that is available to students, faculty, and staff at participating universities, colleges, and health institutes. RefWorks can help you:

  • Collect references while you research in popular databases like PubMed and JSTOR
  • Store and organize your references in a personal account online, accessible anywhere
  • Cite your papers in Microsoft Word and create bibliographies in thousands of output styles
  • Share your references and collaborate with your colleagues

... and much more! We've created this guide to introduce Canadian users to the basic functions and features of RefWorks. Please use the tabs at the top of this page to navigate through the guide.
