Powerful Online Citation Manager
Johns Hopkins affiliates now have free access to a powerful
online citation manager, through IT@Hopkins and the Welch
Medical Library. The program is valuable to anyone who
works with grants, manuscripts, academic papers, reprints
and many other types of documents.
RefWorks is a Web-based program for gathering,
managing and utilizing citation information. It creates
properly formatted bibliographies, capturing citation
information from a wide range of databases (PubMed,
Academic Search Premier, OCLC FirstSearch and many others)
and in a variety of output styles. Users can send citation
information from full-text articles to their RefWorks
account or connect to full-text from their RefWorks
account. They can toggle between seven different languages
and can access references from lab, library, office or on
the road. RefWorks is well suited to collaboration.
EndNote and Reference Manager users will find that
RefWorks has nearly identical features to those programs,
plus much more. Log on using your JHED ID and password at
