Research Citation Managers

Citation tracking software using Refworks, Zotero, and Mendeley.

Welcome to RefWorks at Notre Dame

RefWorks is a citation management software that is designed to help you save, organize and format bibliographic citations that you find in databases such as the ND Catalog, OneSearch, Google Scholar, Web of Science, and more. RefWorks’ Write-n-Cite software allows you to add and format citations in Word documents in a wide variety of citation styles. It is the officially supported citation and research manager software at the University of Notre Dame.

New RefWorks is now available - please read before upgrading to New RefWorks:

Documents created in the Legacy RefWorks interface are not compatible with the new RefWorks interface. Users may create new documents with the new interface using Write-N-Cite, but they cannot continue to work on documents created in the old interface.
