Nursing LRC Tools for Success: RefWorks

Nursing Students Guide for the Baylor University Louise Herrington School of Nursing Learning Resource Center

Using RefWorks


Keep track of your citations with RefWorks, a web-based citation management tool. Also use this to format your references (and paper) using a particular style, such as APA. You can create your reference list with RefWorks.   You'll need to create your own account with RefWorks, which is free for Baylor University students, faculty and staff.  Make sure you double check the references before handing in your assignment. RefWorks is very, very good but it doesn't promise every citation will be perfect. 

Tips about RefWorks:

APA 7th edition citation style is the current edition. 

Citation management programs are extremely helpful tools but that doesn't mean they are perfect - citation data or style may need to be edited, so remember to Check your Citations! (for example: RefWorks will not recognize proper nouns and will turn "Italian" into "italian")
