Changes relating to the Refworks Reference Management Software

Our current subscription to Refworks runs until September 2021. Due to issues with the new platform technology and the increases in the availability of alternative low cost and free reference management tools the decision has been made not to renew this resource and support for Refworks will cease.

Over the remaining period of our Refworks subscription users will be able to access advice regarding alternative reference management tools, and offered support with transferring Refworks libraries to another resource if required.

Guide to using RefWorks

How to get started with RefWorks and Write-N-Cite, including online tutorials, FAQs and hands-on workshops for beginner and advanced users.
