Sharing Folders in New RefWorks

RefWorks allows users to share folders. Each user can view, annotate or modify/add references, depending on the permissions given.

NOTE: You cannot share a New RefWorks folder with someone using Legacy RefWorks. Before you share a folder, make sure that each person you'd like to include on the shared folder has logged into New RefWorks first to create an account.

To share a folder:

  • highlight the folder and click on the 3 dots next to the folder name
  • choose "share folder"
  • add JHU email addresses of collaborators
  • choose permissions
