Librarians at the Sheridan Libraries can help you use RefWorks for your research. Just ask your liaison librarian for assistance, or send an email to refworks@jhmi.edu with a question.

There are many other citation management programs available and you may wish to use one of them. We offer limited help with those products. We provide robust support for RefWorks because JHU has an institutional subscription for that product.

There are many different tools available to help you

  • store and organize your PDFs
  • insert citations into documents
  • share your citations and papers with others
  • collaborate with others.

These products change constantly, so keeping up can be difficult. This 2015 Nature piece reviews the 8 most popular tools. You can also use the Comparison of Reference Management Software entry in Wikipedia for your general questions.
