Tips for Using RefWorks
RefWorks enables you to store, annotate, organize and even search your citations on a number of topics. It also provides an easy way to format your papers, references and works cited.
However, before you start, keep in mind:
It takes some time to learn RefWorks. Before using RefWorks, consider the number of citations you need and the length of time you will be doing your research.
If you only need a few citations and you won't continue research after a paper or two, you may not want to take the time to learn RefWorks.
RefWorks is not a perfect system. You will still need a basic knowledge of various citation styles.
Always edit each citation for accuracy and completeness of citation.
Edit after you import or export a citation.
Proofread your footnotes and bibliography for any omissions or errors.
