RefWorks has the ability to organize the documents the students need to complete assignments, creating instant citations and bibliographies, making assignments and paper completion efficient. Faculty value RefWorks for its creation of a simple online workspace that supports research collaboration, transcending geography. For librarians, RefWorks’ institutional subscription puts them at the hub of their community with a high-value service that supports all university researchers.

RefWorks updates

ProQuest has announced that RefWorks and Flow will merge by September 2017.  Starting in Mid-2016 current Refworks users will be offered the opportunity to migrate from Refworks to Refworks Flow.  You can try out Refworks Flow as it is being developed anytime by using the link above.

All University of Toronto RefWorks accounts were migrated from the Scholars Portal Canadian server to the RefWorks US server in July. Your references, folders, attachments, and shares are intact on the new server.

How the change affects you:

  • Please update your RefWorks bookmarks to the new URL.
  • If you use Write-N-Cite (now called ProQuest for Word), please reinstall it using the installation instructions
  • Existing accounts do not need to use a group code to log into RefWorks.
  • New accounts do require the group code (available here) to create a new RefWorks account.
  • Your RefWorks account name may have been changed, if necessary to make it unique on the new server. If so, you have been sent an email notification, and you can customize your new account name.
  • You now have access to a new RefWorks service, Flow.
