There are two ways to add comments into your RefWorks records. If you are using your PRIMARY RefWorks account, follow Method 1.  If you are using a second account or a group account, use Method 2.

To add a comment to any record in RefWorks, first login to your RefWorks account.


Once you have logged in, you will see your list of references. In the shaded bar above each reference, you will see a comment bubble that looks like this:.

Click on the comment button. A comment screen will unfold. 

Enter your name, email, and enter your comment (1, 2, & 3). Finally, click "Post Comment."

You will be able to discern whether or not an item has a comment because the comment icon will have changed to two little bubbles. 


Once you have logged in to your RefWorks account, identify the record you wish you annotate. 

Click on the edit icon for that record.

Once in edit mode, click on the arrow next to "Additional Fields" to uncollapse the menu. Add your comments into the "Personal Notes" field. Save the reference, and then x out of the window.
