Citation Management Tools & Styles
Web-based bibliography and database managers that allow you to create your own personal database by importing references from text files or online databases and other various sources. You can use these references in writing papers and automatically format the paper.
1. Legacy RefWorks is very stable and will perform all the functions required of a citation manager until it is retired sometime in 2018. For short-term projects, legacy RefWorks is a good choice, especially while all features and functions of the new RefWorks have not been released.
2. Legacy RefWorks would not be a good choice for people who are starting a long term project, such as a dissertation, and may not finish by the time the Legacy version disappears.
3. I already have a legacy RefWorks account. Should I transition to the new version? New RefWorks is available now; the legacy version is still available and will be until at least 2018. You must consider a number of factors before deciding to transition from Legacy RefWorks to the New RefWorks.
4. If you are currently using the Legacy version and plan to finish your project before 2018, consider sticking with Legacy RefWorks. If you are starting a project that will continue into 2018, consider using the New RefWorks. You may have accounts in both the new and the legacy version of RefWorks The accounts are separate from each other. You may want to consider experimenting with the new RefWorks for a new project, while relying on the legacy version for current projects.
5. Although it has been released, New RefWorks is still in Beta. That means not all features and functions, such as attaching non-PDF images to citations, have been released. Proquest is releasing new features each month.
