Proquest Refworks is a citation manager. Citation managers allow you to upload and organize citations for future reference, create bibliographies with ease, assist with in-text citations, upload full text articles, highlight and annotate uploaded articles, and share with colleagues during collaborative group projects.
Currently, RefWorks is the citation manager of choice for Texas Woman's University.
Some databases will directly upload citations to RefWorks; others require the download of a file to your hard drive that is then imported into RefWorks.
Note: The direct method works better with a small number of citations. If you're uploading a large number of citations, we recommend that you use the indirect import detailed below.
Note: No automatic bibliography creator is perfect. Make sure to check each citation to confirm that the capitalization and punctuation is correct, based on the citation style for your assignment.
How you incorporate your citations into your writing will depend on what you use to write your papers. Older versions of Word will use a Write-n-Cite plug in; newer versions will use RefWorks Citation Manager (RCM). Google Docs users can download RefWorks for Google Docs. There are even versions for use on iPads.
