"New" RefWorks (formerly called Flow) is replacing the "legacy" version of RefWorks which is expected to retire in January 2018 in preparation for this change users are encouraged to sign up for new RefWorks and transfer your citations from the legacy version. Users will be forced to transition in Summer 2017. The current (legacy) RefWorks platform is unaffected: new accounts may be created and existing RefWorks accounts remain unchanged. The new RefWorks is expected to receive updates throughout 2016.
To try new RefWorks, use your NAU email to create your new RefWorks login. You will have the option to import references from a legacy RefWorks account, both during the new account set-up as well as anytime from within the new account. Importing references into the new platform will not affect your current (legacy) RefWorks account.
Can I transfer my citations from Legacy RefWorks to New RefWorks?
Will creating an account in New RefWorks delete my account in Legacy RefWorks?
I created an account with New RefWorks but when I try to import citations from a database Legacy RefWorks appears. How do I get New RefWorks to appear?
If you have used Legacy RefWorks in the past and switch to New RefWorks, importing citations from databases may direct you to Legacy RefWorks. If this happens to you, simply clear your browsers cookies and then login to New RefWorks. This should solve the problem.
What are some features of new RefWorks?
The new RefWorks was originally called Flow. All previously-created Flow accounts exist on the new RefWorks platform. To access your Flow references, use your Flow login and password on the new RefWorks platform. A user guide (pdf) for a smoother transition from Flow to the new RefWorks is available.
