1 'Refworks - A new users perspective' Ian Knox Centre for Regional Innovation and Competitiveness and School of Business
2 ABSTRACT In this seminar, I want to share my experience to date using Refworks, an online bibliography and citation generator, and research management tool. This seminar is not a replacement for a formal training session (conducted by the library); rather is an opportunity to see Refworks demonstrated and discussed from a researchers point of view. I currently has about 300 citations in my Refworks database and to date my experience has been overwhelmingly positive despite the occasional glitch.
3 The Bits 1)Refworks – the database 2)Write-n-cite :- for WORD in-text citation and bibliography creation (Download from refworks).
