SOWK 7118: PrOSEAD: Organizing Your References


Refworks is a web-based citation manager that lets you: a. collect your references in the same place and b. format in text citations and reference lists in Microsoft Word and Google Docs.​ 

Create your Refworks Account using your email address. 

Get started with the Refworks guide.

Make an appointment with your librarian for a Refworks tutorial.

Organizing Your Files

Rename files downloaded from our databases or the internet using the first author's last name and a short title (lastname_shorttitle.pdf). The default filenames are often unhelpful, like "contentserver.pdf" or "019967432.pdf".

Keep them in the same folder on your computer or citation manager. (Sub-folders are also a good idea, but make sure all your research can be found under the same main folder.)
