RefWorks is a handy citation tracking tool that allows users to import references, sort them into folders, and share them with other RefWorks users. Himmelfarb offers two versions of RefWorks: RefWorks Legacy which is terrific for systematic reviews and the new Proquest RefWorks which valued for its Google Docs integration. Both versions of RefWorks provide a Microsoft Word plug that helps you create in-text citations and a references list.
One of the best features of RefWorks is the ability to easily import references from some of Himmelfarb’s top databases, like PubMed, CINAHL, Scopus, and Health Information @ Himmelfarb. You can even import directly from Google Scholar! You can find instructions on how to do so on our RefWorks Research Guide under “Importing reference into RefWorks.”
RefWorks also supports extensive and personalized organization of your references. You can create your own folders for individual papers, projects, or classes, and sort your references into those folders immediately after importing them.
Once you’ve imported your references, RefWorks helps you generate bibliographies in APA, AMA, and hundreds of other citation styles you may need for publication. If you’ve downloaded Write-N-Cite, you can sync your RefWorks account to Word, and even use it to generate properly formatted in-text citations in your style of choice!
