Although you can no longer create multiple RefWorks accounts (including those for group projects), New RefWorks has a number of new features that have vastly improved its ability to share content and manage multiple projects.
Table of Contents
You can view the references that have been shared with you, and in some cases add comments. If you want to edit or export references that have been shared with you, you must first copy them to your own reference folders.
Similar to having a multiple RefWorks accounts, projects allow you to maintain separate reference collections for different research projects.
You can share your projects with other RefWorks users. Those users have full permissions within the project, including adding, deleting, and modifying folders and references.
When a folder is shared with you, you will receive an email notification. You can view the folder in the Sharing tab in RefWorks. To view the references in a shared folder, you must accept the invitation: select Join in the folder's row.
The folder will appear in your left sidebar, under Sharing.
- You can view the references and citations of shared folders. When enabled, you can also add comments and notes to the citations or even remove or add citations to the references.
- You can remove your own access to a shared folder using the action menu in the folder's row. If you remove your own access to a shared folder, any tags that are associated only with references in that folder are removed from your list of tags.
