Write and let RefWorks cite!


RefWorks Legacy & New Proquest RefWorks

It’s time to start thinking about final research projects for Fall 2019, and Himmelfarb Library offers a fantastic tool to help you track your research – RefWorks!

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!

For more information on RefWorks and the support Himmelfarb provides, as well as some handy video tutorials, check out our RefWorks Research Guide.
