RefWorks (Software Instruction)

RefWorks online software simplifies the process of research, collaboration, data organization, and writing by providing an easy-to-use tool for citation, bibliography, and reference management. Learn how to build a collection of references.

Add reference from PDF (Upload file OR Drag & Drop)

References can be uploaded in Word or PDF format in a couple of ways. RefWorks will locate the metadata in the document to generate the citation. NOTE: these types of references almost always need further editing, depending on the type of document. See: Editing references.
