Proquest has released New Refworks and announced the scheduled retirement of Legacy Refworks:

  • All current users must upgrade by early 2018
  • All New Refworks accounts require a email address as the username


  • New users - use only New Refworks
  • Existing Refworks users:
    • Before you migrate, read carefully the upgrade instructions PDF to see how you will be impacted.
    • If you need the collaboration features (i.e. sharing references with other Refworks users) DO NOT upgrade yet, since the collaboration features are not fully mature.
    • Migrate your Legacy Refworks data into a New Refworks account
    • Papers started in legacy RefWorks will not be compatible with New RefWorks. We recommend you keep your current legacy Refworks account until you complete your work.‚Äč
