RefWorks: How Can It Help You?

RefWorks is a web-based citation management system. The system can:

  • export references from databases,
  • organize references,
  • store articles,
  • add personal notes about the references,
  • share folders,
  • format citations and reference lists in hundreds of citation styles,
  • insert properly formatted in-text citations (or footnotes) and reference lists (or bibliographies or works cited lists) when using Microsoft Word or Google Docs.

Useful Resources

Citing medicine: the NLM style guide for authors, editors, and publishers provides instructions and examples for formatting bibliographic citations for different types of published and unpublished materials. These materials range from traditional journal articles and books to electronic formats such as online journals, Web pages, and blog posts. Citing Medicine does not provide in-text citation styles.

This site presents a collection of resources on citing electronic information. Note that although this site is now closed permanently (last updated in 2012), many of the links are still valid.

If you have the DOI name (e.g., 10.1000/xyz123) of an article, type or paste it into the text box and click Go. Your browser will take you to a Web page (URL) associated with that DOI name.

Intended to support researchers and librarians, this tool can be used to quickly identify or confirm journal titles and abbreviations for publications indexed by CAS since 1907, including serial and non-serial scientific and technical publications. Search by Title, Abbreviation, CODEN, ISBN, or ISSN. Click on the CASSI link within the CAS site to launch the tool.
