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.
