RefWorks Introduces New Functions

Cambridge Scientific Abstracts has announced that it has released a new version of its RefWorks Internet-based bibliographic management software that will provide expandeddata organization and dissemination functions.

RefWorks' enhancements include the following:

  • The ability for users to create multiple folders in their database for enhanced organization
  • The ability to check for duplicate records
  • A global edit function for author names, descriptors, and periodicals
  • User-defined descriptors (keywords) added to multiple records at once
  • User-definable fields (five separate fields have been added)
  • "Electronic Journal" is now available as a "New Reference Type"
  • Read-Only Access, which allows users to share a database with colleagues without allowing permission to alter the data
  • Added footnote functionality—Changed formats include MLA; Chicago Notes, 14th edition; and Turabian Notes, 6th edition
RefWorks bibliographic software allows users to create their own database of references by importing from text files or online databases. Users can access these references while writing papers and automatically format the work with footnotes and create a bibliography. They can also share access to RefWorks to disseminate bibliographies to colleagues or students.
