What is RefWorks?

RefWorks is a cloud-based program that allows you to manage your citations and bibliographies from any computer with an Internet connection.

All of your citations are stored in your online RefWorks account, and you can use a plugin for Microsoft Word or Google Docs to add the citations to your research papers and assignments.

RefWorks is licensed for use by Northeastern faculty, staff, and students.
