A guide to using the RefWorks reference management software.

What is RefWorks?

RefWorks is a reference management program that the University of Northampton subscribes to. It allows you to store, organise and export references and can make it easier for you to do referencing in academic work. RefWorks is entirely web-based so you do not need to download or install any additional software - you just needs an internet connection and a web browser.

While RefWorks can save you time you still need to have a good understanding of when to cite and reference and the rules of the referencing style you're using. You can find detailed guidance on the different referencing styles used at the University of Northampton on the Skills Hub.
