RefWorks: Group Work

Explore RefWorks, a web based reference manager available to staff and students of the university.

Creating a Group Account

The easiest way to collaborate with a group of people on a single document using RefWorks is to create one RefWorks account for the entire group to share:

 

  1. Create a free email account just for the project (e.g. Gmail) and use it to create a RefWorks account (Do not use a group member’s personal email account to create the RefWorks account, just in case that person leaves the group.)
  2. Follow these instructions for creating the account
  3. Make sure all group members have the login details for the email account and the RefWorks account.
  4. Group members can then log into the same RefWorks account, edit references and insert citations into the group's document.

 

Sharing Folders

If you already have references in your personal RefWorks account that you want to share with the group, you can export the references and then import them into the shared account.
