RefWorks, the popular bibliographic management tool, has launched the beta version of its new RefWorks 2.0 interface. The core functions of RefWorks— storing references in an online repository, creating bibliographies, and information sharing and collaboration— are all enhanced through the improved interface.
RefWorks users who are comfortable with the current version should have little trouble adapting to the new version, which makes use of icons, tabs, and a “Quick List” for easy navigation. Editing references by browsing your computer and adding attachments like links to PDF articles or a JPG are even easier than before.
Sometime this spring, RefWorks 2.0 will become the default interface for Health Science Center RefWorks users; however, the classic version will continue to be available. All references stored in current accounts will be accessible through the new interface, so current users will not lose any information.
If you want to test drive the new interface before it becomes the default for our site, you will need to create a new test account here. Remember that this account is not linked to your classic RefWorks account through UT Health Science Center at this time.
