We apologise for any inconvenience.

RefWorks Access Changes

Over the next year RefWorks is upgrading to a new interface and as part of this process you will now, when exporting items to RefWorks, be offered the choice between the following two options:

Click the image to see a larger version of the picture

refworks options

When you see this screen please click:

refworks options 3

This will take you to the version of RefWorks accessible by RGU students and staff and that includes the RGU styles for Harvard and Vancouver referencing.

Once you click the logo you will either be taken straight through to RefWorks (if you had already logged in) or you will need to follow the supplementary login procedure described on the RefWorks guide (scroll down to find the info).

If you follow the option with the blue logo you will find that RGU students and staff do not have access. You will also have to start your export again if you click this by accident.

We are investigating and testing the new version of RefWorks but at this time there are still essential features that are not available. Once we are happy that the new version of RefWorks is fully working and suitable for use we will be making it available, adding in our referencing styles, creating guides and supporting students and staff in moving their references to the new interface. There is no timescale for moving to the new version currently.
