Refworks: Quickstart Guide

The more you advance in your academic career, the more important it becomes to have a process to manage your sources. Complete this module for an in-depth look at the RefWorks citation utility.

Managing Bibs with RefWorks Add-Ons

RefWorks offers two optional tools to help you write your paper:

  • Write-n-Cite (which works with Microsoft Word)
  • RefWorks Add-on (for Google Docs)

You can also create a simple bibliography from your references right in your RefWorks account.  

Any additions, changes or deletions you make in your RefWorks account are automatically synched with the Google Docs Add-on. 

Note:  Changes are NOT made to any in-text citations or the bibliography in your document.

If you use Microsoft Word for writing papers, you'll love the tools RefWorks provides you. It's a plugin that allows you to quickly insert and edit citations, adding them to your bibliography as you go.
