New Enhancements to RefWorks

RefWorks, the Web-based software package for managing citations and creating bibliographies, has recently been updated. The new RefWorks 2.0 version has a streamlined look with fewer menus and intuitive navigation buttons. Features that make RefWorks so useful, such as the ability to share citations with your colleagues, have been brought to the front page, enabling users to complete tasks quickly.

Other improvements include:

  •  The availability of subfolders to easily organize citations
  • One click access to the one line/cite view option
  • The My List feature which allows citations to be brought together into a temporary folder
  • Duplicate citations within a folder can now be removed
  • A new side Quick Access bar that can be minimized

You can view this short preview video that outlines many of the new RefWorks 2.0 features.

All citations originally stored using the “classic” version of Reworks will remain accessible in the RefWorks 2.0 version.

RefWorks is currently working on a new version of Write-N-Cite, the software needed to create bibliographies. Until it is released, Refworks 2.0 users may continue to use Write-N-Cite III for Windows.

To access RefWorks 2.0, type “RefWorks” in the Pitt Resources Quick Search box. New users must sign up for an account on the RefWorks login page.
