RefWorks is a web-based reference management tool. Users’ references are stored online in cloud. This allows the references to be accessed and updated from any computer with an Internet connection.

RefWorks allows you to:

  • Gather references from different databases and elsewhere in the Web
  • Maintain and organize references
  • Share references with other RefWorks users
  • Generate bibliographies and format manuscripts in a variety of citation styles
  • Transfer references to and from other reference management tools

RefWorks is available for UEF students and staff and for Kuopio University Hospital (KUH) staff. All Finnish universities have acquired a RefWorks licence.
