Managing citations and applying citation styles
University of Western Sydney provides free access to an online bibliographic management program, REFWORKS, which enables you to create your own personal database of references. You can automatically import references from a search performed in an online database or enter references manually. Searching tools within RefWorks enable you to easily navigate your database and search for references.
RefWorks also allows you to format your references for papers and bibliographies in a variety of citation styles. Using RefWorks can make writing papers a lot simpler and easier and as a result save you time and ensure accuracy of citations.
RefWorks software is web based so you need to create your own password to access your stored records. If you wish to format a bibliography and cite references in your documents, a small software download is required from the RefWorks home page.
Access to RefWorks is provided to all UWS staff and students.
Further information on using RefWorks including a tutorial and FAQs are available on the UWS Library website, via http://library.uws.edu.au/refworks.php
