RefWorks Introduction

RefWorks is a reference management service designed to help researchers manage research projects. The service includes full-text and bibliographic management, collaboration features, and browser integration.

This guide focuses on full-text and bibliographic management, such as

  • Exporting citations from TUN research databases including PubMed, CINAHL, Embase, and other resources
  • Organizing citations into folders
  • Adding and formatting citations as you write a paper in Microsoft Word and Google Docs

This is a very useful tool that can save you time.

Citation Management

There are many tools that provide ways to manage citations, from web-based forms to downloadable software. Some that you may be familiar with are EndNote, Zotero, Mendeley, and Citation Machine. Based on your research needs and working style, you may prefer one over another.
