RefWorks: Cite references and construct bibliographies

  • RefWorks icon hands-on task | Publicly viewable

Use RefWorks to build a library of the papers, books and other text you encounter in your research. RefWorks also helps you insert citations to those works into your own word-processed documents and papers. A bibliography is assembled automatically at the end of the document.

Members of Oxford University may have an account with RefWorks, free of charge.


This task will give you a flavour of how RefWorks might be used in your research. You can try this task on your own, although it was designed to be done in a classroom with a teacher to support you.

You will need Word (version 2010 or later) installed on your computer. Talk to your IT support person about this.
