RefWorks: Setting up your RefWorks Account

Getting started with your RefWorks account


 RefWorks is a Web-based research management, writing, and collaboration tool designed to help researchers at all levels easily gather, organize, store, and share all types of information and to instantly generate citations and bibliographies.

Accessing RefWorks:

  • From the UTHealth SPH Library's homepage, click on Databases A to Z. Under Frequently Used, choose Refworks.
  • Sign up for a new account by providing your email address and password.                                                                                                                                                                                                                       You can use any email address you prefer. If you are working on a group project, consider a name  that everyone in the group can remember, ex. health_prom_obesity. Keep your password simple— don’t use your UTHSC-H password as it changes every 90 days.
  • RefWorks will send you an email confirmation; click through the link to verify your account.
