RefWorks is a Web-based tool, accessible from any computer connected to Internet, for collecting, accessing, organizing, citing, and sharing citations including articles, books, websites, and more. It does not require additional software although you can download Write-N-Cite, a utility that adds citations directly into your MS Word document.
RefWorks is FREE for current SPH students, staff, and faculty, as well as for SPH alumni!
The UTHealth School of Public Health Library created a RefWorks LibGuide that contains several RefWorks handouts.
The Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association was created by the APA, and contains the complete guidelines on how to format material for publication and cite your research. It is a set of style rules that codifies the components of scientific writing in order to deliver concise and bias-free information to the reader.
It is highly recommended that you keep the Publication Manual by your side throughout the writing process.
Print copies of the Publication Manual are available at the UTHealth School of Public Health Library:

The AMA Manual of Style is a writing resource for the medical, social sciences, and scientific publishing community. The first edition of the manual was published in 1962 by the AMA, and was originally intended as a guide, primarily, for in-house staff and, secondarily, for authors. Since then, the manual, now in its 10th edition, has grown from 68 pages to 1,032 pages!
This is a must-have guide for anyone involved in medical and scientific publishing.
Electronic copies of the manual are available through the UTHealth School of Public Health Library.
Hardcover copies of the manual are available at the TMC Library.
