Introduction to RefWorks:

RefWorks is an online bibliographic management tool that allows you to import citations directly from library databases, create bibliographies, and format your bibliography and in-text citations while you write in Microsoft Word.

There are two RefWorks interfaces to choose from. If you already have a RefWorks account, sign into "Legacy" RefWorks. If you haven't used RefWorks before, create a new account in the New RefWorks interface. More information below:

New RefWorks Logo

To create a RefWorks account:

  1. Go to and click the “sign up” link.

  2. Fill in your information making sure to use your institutional email address (you can’t sign up with,, etc.).  

Once you activate your account (you'll receive an email with a link to complete the registration process), you’ll get access immediately and can get started managing your documents.


IMPORTANT: If you are already have a RefWorks account in the legacy interface, don't create a new account! You won't be able to use New RefWorks to continue work on any documents you started using Write-N-Cite in the Legacy version.
