Migrating from legacy to new RefWorks

Additional functionality is being added to New RefWorks to replicate the tools available in legacy RefWorks.   This is expected to be completed by the end of 2017.

We expect to be required move customers using legacy RefWorks to new RefWorks in summer 2018.  For more detailed information on this change see the Proquest RefWorks Support Center.  There are instructions on how to migrate to new Refworks that you can print.

Integration with Word

To integrate new RefWorks with Word 2010 or 2013 you need Write N Cite.   Follow the links below to find out more and for instructions on how to install on your own computer.  NB: You cannot install this on Middlesex University student PCs or Macs, just your own machine.  

Full instructions are on the Proquest New RefWorks Libguide

If you are using Word 2016, you will need to get the new RefWorks Citation Manager from the app store.  (You can use Write N Cite, but RCM is the newer and better product.)
