RefWorks: Transitioning to a New Citation Management Program: Individual RefWorks Account

RefWorks is a web-based tool that helps you collect all of your references into one place, and also offers the ability to easily insert them into your paper and format the bibliography or works cited list.

RefWorks Individual Account

Yes, you can have an individual RefWorks subscription.

After you back up your references and attachments (see video below) from your UCSD-associated account, go to and click on login.  Then, you can click on sign up for an account.  A 30 day trial is available. This process is completely different than the steps for migrating from Refworks to EndNote or Mendeley.
