RefWorks is an online research management, writing and collaboration tool, designed to help researchers easily gather, manage, store and share all types of information, as well as generate citations and bibliographies. The Bodleian Libraries has taken out a subscription so any bona fide member of the University may freely create an account.
Log on to RefWorks here, http://www.refworks.com/refworks
Once logged on, there are many tutorials and information resources to help you work successfully.
If you want to access your account from outside the Oxford domain, you will need to input the Oxford "Group Code" before being presented with the RefWorks login page. You can access the Group Code here using your Oxford University SSO username and password.
Note that we are subscribing to RefWorks: Scopus Edition. This provides an exceptional degree of integration between the two products. Read an overview of what is possible.
Our RefWorks licence allows for lifetime use by Oxford University alumni (as long as we continue our subscription). If you wish to access your RefWorks account away from Oxford after you graduate you can make a note of the Group Code mentioned above by using your Oxford Single Sign On username and password before you leave.
If you wish to set up a RefWorks account after you have left Oxford and your SSO credentials have expired you need to email the RefWorks administrator who can send you the Group Code.
