RefWorks - Citation Management Software


NOTE: Please be aware that support for RefWorks Write-N-Cite will end this year. 

All RefWorks users should upgrade to Refworks Citation Manager (RCM) add-in before the end of the year.


RefWorks is an online tool for managing and citing your references. 

With RefWorks you can

  • add and organize reference information (aka citation information).
  • save and annotate files (e.g. PDF of an article) associated with each reference.
  • cite references in a citation style of your choice.
  • write in Word or Google docs and create citations along the way. 
  • collaborate on a project or share references with peers & colleagues.

RefWorks is provided by the UC Merced Library to all UC Merced students, faculty and staff.
