What is RefWorks?

RefWorks is an online bibliographic management tool that is freely available to staff and students at The University of Notre Dame Australia.

RefWorks helps you organise the references and files you collect while doing academic research. With the software add-in Write-n-Cite, you can import references straight from your RefWorks account into your Microsoft Word document.

RefWorks Citation Manager (RCM) is an add-in tool for Microsoft Word that enables you to easily insert in-text citations and bibliography (reference list) into your document. 

Attention!  RefWorks Write-N-Cite (WnC) writing tool for Microsoft Word is becoming outdated and will no longer be supported by RefWorks.

To keep managing your citations smoothly, you need to switch to RefWorks Citation Manager (RCM) by the end of 2024. Instructions on how to migrate from Write-N-Cite to RefWorks Citation Manager are available in the links below.
