RefWorks is an online reference management software, which you can use to create your own personal database for references and files.
You can share your references with other users in Refworks.
You can add citations directly to your text document using add-ons. It’s also easy to create a bibliography of your references by using Refworks.
In 2016 a new version of RefWorks was introduced, and the legacy version will be gradually phased out.
You’ll have to create a user account in the new version, and you’ll find the instructions to do so in the tab “Creating a RefWorks account” of this guide (recommended alternative).
You can also choose to start using the new version by logging into the old version of RefWorks first. Once you’re logged in, you’ll see the link "Move to the newest version of RefWorks from ProQuest” on the top left corner.
Exporting the references saved in the old version to the new one is easy. See below for instructions.
There are quite a few reference management softwares available, from free to commercial, and proprietary to open source. One of the more popular ones is Zotero, an open source software with similar functionalities to RefWorks. It's available as a browser add-on and as a stand-alone desktop version.
