RefWorks helps you manage your bibliography and citations, and can be accessed from any computer connected to the Internet. You store your citations on the RefWorks website, and use a Microsoft Word plugin to automatically create bibliographies. RefWorks is licensed for use by current NU faculty, staff, and students.
It's best to log into RefWorks via this page on the library website. We route you through the Northeastern log-in to make some off-campus functions work more smoothly. If you do not already have an account, start with "create account".
Get the Group Code for Northeastern from the ITS knowledgebase (myNEU username and password required). Please do not share the group code with anyone outside of the Northeastern community.
See warning above. To download the newest version, you should uninstall Write-n-Cite 4 first.
1. Log into your account on the RefWorks website.
2. Go to "More" (the image of three vertical dots) then Tools, then Refworks Citation Manager. This installs a toolbar into Microsoft Word. As of July 2016: Proquest reports that this is not compatible with Word 2016 for Macs. (Mac users: use "Create a Bibliography" instead.)
