Which should I choose?

Choose New RefWorks if you:

  • Have never used RefWorks before or only sparingly in the past
  • Dislike the layout/usability of Legacy RefWorks
  • Currently use Legacy RefWorks but would like to try out the features of New RefWorks
  • Were a Flow user

Choose Legacy RefWorks if you:

  • Use the current version of RefWorks frequently and do not want to switch to New RefWorks yet
  • Currently use Legacy RefWorks, are leaving NAU soon and do not see yourself using RefWorks in the future.
  • Want to wait until additional features are added to New RefWorks

Citations from Legacy RefWorks can be imported into New RefWorks. Currently, you are able to use both versions at the same time.  Using New RefWorks does not affect your Legacy RefWorks account.

See the New RefWorks Help section for help creating an account or transferring citations from Legacy RefWorks to New RefWorks
