RefWorks for the Sciences

REFWORKS FOR THE SCIENCES – November 1st 10:00-11:30 AM

RefWorks is a web-based citation management tool sponsored by the UBC Library and available free-of-charge to current UBC faculty, staff, and students.

In this workshop, you’ll learn how to create your own personal database in RefWorks by importing references from online resources such as Web of Science, Google Scholar, PubMed, Compendex and others. Then you’ll use RefWorks to add these citations to a paper and automatically format both in text references and the bibliography in a citation style of your choice.
