RefWorks is a web-based bibliography and database manager that allows you to create a personal, searchable database of citations. RefWorks is also a citation generator and your citations can be formatted into your Microsoft Word documents as footnotes or a custom bibliography in the citation style of your choosing. However, as with any citation generator, keep in mind that you are ultimately responsible for the citations presented in your papers.
Because it is entirely web-based (i.e. the bibliographic records reside on the web, not on your computer), it gives you access to your bibliographies from Mac, PC, or UNIX, as long as it’s connected to the Internet. To be safe, be sure to backup files. RefWorks also offers a mobile platform.
