What is New RefWorks?

The New RefWorks increases researcher productivity by simplifying the research experience. It is the one tool that researchers need to gather, organize, read, and cite their research materials. It also makes it easy to collaborate with others on joint projects.

  • Collect and Import – With RefWorks it is simple and fast, to collect or import materials. Auto completion of reference data and retrieval of full text saves time and ensures accurate citations.
  • Manage Research – RefWorks enables users to organize, read, and annotate everything they collect and import.
  • Share and Collaborate – RefWorks smoothly allows users to share collections and collaborate with others.
  • Write and Cite – RefWorks is accurate, delivering thousands of customizable citation styles to use within authoring tools.
  • Streamlined Workflows – RefWorks makes research management and paper-writing easy with streamlined workflows that increase productivity.  

Note that the Health Sciences Library has recreated the GSBMS Thesis Style inside of New RefWorks for your use. For more information on the style itself, visit our GSBMS Thesis Prep guide. In order to use this style, either in New RefWorks or in Word, follow the instructions on the General New RefWorks Functions and New RefWorks Tools pages.
