Projects and folders have two distinct functions in New RefWorks, particularly in regards to sharing. Projects are a way of organizing references associated with different, distinct assignments. If you share a project in New RefWorks, you are essentially creating a project co-owner, who has the ability to add, edit, and delete any references or folders in the project. All project co-owners also have the ability to use these references in Word by using the Write-N-Cite (WNC) or Reference Citation Manager (RCM) plugin.
In contrast, folders are subdivisions of a project and serve the purpose of organizing information within the project they’re associated with. If you share a folder, you are essentially showing others the references within the folder. While you do have the ability to let people modify the shared folder, items that you do not put into the folder are not part of your library, meaning that you cannot dedup or use them in Word.
New RefWorks has two types of styles, RefWorks styles and CSL styles. New RefWorks styles are created by the people who created and maintain the New RefWorks software. You can duplicate and modify these styles from within New RefWorks. CSL styles are open-source styles that New RefWorks does not guarantee the accuracy of. You can modify them from the Citation Style Visual Editor website, and they will appear in New RefWorks the next day.
There is a limit to how many documents you can upload to RefWorks. To check the amount of available space you have:
