What is RefWorks (new and improved)?

The new RefWorks is a way to manage citations and documents as part of the research process.

You can:

  • Save documents for access on multiple computers/devices
  • Add highlights and notes to documents
  • Save and edit citation information and create bibliographies
  • Organize files into folders and share them with other people
  • Save web pages for later viewing

Alumni access

Q.: I'm graduating. Can I keep my account?

A.: Yes!

You can continue to use your RefWorks account. However, you will no longer be able to use Find It @ UW after you graduate. 

If you plan to continue your education at another university, contact Flow support about moving your account ().
