RefWorks is an online reference manager. With RefWorks, you can easily capture, manage, save and share references in your own personal database.
RefWorks allows you to:
- Import bibliographical information from databases and catalogs (Google Scholar, UL catalogue, sEURch, EBSCO, Pubmed, Web of Science, other specific databases or publishers' sites like Science Direct or SpringerLink).
- Manage and organize this data; create subfiles by subject or course; add attachments and keywords to the bibliographical information and remove duplicate records.
- Cite your literature in a Word-document with Write-n-Cite and create a bibliography in an output style of choice (including Harvard, APA, MLA and Chicago).
To get started, create your own RefWorks account. To make an account, you have to be inside the IP-range of the EUR, so use a computer on campus; if off-campus, you first have to log in to the EUR network via a VPN connection. To create an account you have to use your ERNA e-mail address.
Want to learn more? Have a look at our online RefWorks course or register for the RefWorks workshop.
Students and employees of the EUR can participate in a Workshop RefWorks, which aims to give you a basic overview of how to work with RefWorks.
The following functions of RefWorks will be discussed:
- customizing your RefWorks-account;
- importing references from UL-databases and Google Scholar;
- organising and managing references in your RefWorks-account;
- creating bibliographies and
- adding references to a Word-document with Write-n-Cite.
This workshop takes place in May on the fourth Monday of the month, from 15:00 to 16:30 o'clock, in the conference room (BT-18) in the Posthumusroom of the University Library. The next Workshop RefWorks takes place on Monday, May 27th, 2013.
You can register for this workshop by using the registration form below. The language of the workshop (Dutch or English) depends on the participants. Therefore we ask you to enter the language you prefer for the handout. When you enter your faculty or field of study we can choose relevant examples for the handouts.
We strongly advise you to create a RefWorks-account before the workshop. You can find more information in the online course RefWorks.
