ProQuest RefWorks

RefWorks is a Web-based citation tool.  It generates citations and bibliographies, and stores PDFs.  Texas A&M University students and faculty can create a ProQuest RefWorks account for free by visiting: https://refworks.proquest.com 
 

Tips & Tricks


  • You must install the Write-N-Cite utility to integrate your RefWorks account with your word processing program (e.g., Word, Apple Pages, and Google Docs).
    • The download is located under Tools in your RefWorks account.
  • Install the RefGrab-It utility if you would like to capture citations from web pages, or if a database does not provide the option to export to RefWorks (e.g., PubMed).
    • The download is located under Tools in your RefWorks account.
  • If data seems to be missing from your RefWorks account when using Write-N-Cite, request that Write-N-Cite sync with your RefWorks account by using the Sync My Database feature.
    • The Sync My Database feature is located under the RefWorks tab within your word processing program. 
  • RefWorks can fail to capitalize proper nouns.  Correct capitalization mistakes when you have finished writing your paper, as corrections to references in your bibliography will be overwritten each time you add or change citations in the body of your paper.
