The RefWorks is an online tool that helps researchers to collect and manage references. This service has been available for all university citizens since September 1,  2008. To access the service an individual signing up is required.

Experts of the Library serve as administrators, advisers and trainers for the service, who provide hands-on trainings in the Library.


During any kind of scientific research a huge mass of information is collected by the researcher. Collecting, organizing and publishing it in publications is getting more and more difficult and time-consuming.

The RefWorks is a web-based tool that helps managing research, publishing and scientific cooperation.

This online service provides the following opportunities:

  • Creating a personal, individual database. Data of articles important for the researcher can be put into it in several ways:
    • importing data directly from online catalogs and databases,
    • importing data from text files,
    • manually entering references,
    • converting references from other bibliographic management tools.
  • Users can determine how to organize and retrieve (author, title, subject) of articles.
     
  • Users can make lists of references in hundreds of different styles (MLA, APA, Harvard, and in many other styles that are required by certain periodicals like ACM Computing Reviews, AIDS Research and Therapy, Journal of Economic Literature, Linguistic Typology). Moreover, users can define their own styles.

  • Users can share specific contents of the database with research partners by ensuring different levels of eligibilites (reading, exporting, generating lists of references)  for them.
