RefWorks (Legacy): Simple Reference List

This guide has information on how to use RefWorks legacy (older version).

How to create a Simple Reference List

In RefWorks you can create a list of references, without creating a document first. This Reference List may contain your entire database, the references in your My List area, or you can select a specific folder from which to create the bibliography.

You can use this Reference List to preview your finished list of references, or simply generate a list to copy and paste into your document. You can also email the list to yourself or others.

To create a Reference List from a specific folder or the entire database:

  1. Click the Bibliography menu.
  2. Under Output Style, select your desired style.
  3. Select "Format a Bibliography from a List of References."
  4. Under File Type, select the file format you wish to create (Text, HTML, RTF (Rich Text), Word for Windows, Word for Mac etc.)
  5. Under References to Include, select All References, My List or References from one of your folders.
  6. Click the Create Bibliography button.

Follow your browser's instructions for viewing the file and be sure to save the document to your hard disk before closing.

Please see the Help item: Creating A Simple Reference List for more complete information including other suggestions for using the Simple Reference List.
