The new RefWorks (formerly Flow) is a web-based citation management program that allows you to easily collect, organize, cite and share sources. Developed by ProQuest, The new RefWorks was created to provide a solution for the changing workflow of researchers. It is free to those with an institutional email, including a UBC email. The new RefWorks includes a pdf reader so you can easily highlight, annotate and make notes while you read and offers a free add-on for Google Docs. With a paid subscription, you are able to automatically cite and generate a bibliography in MS Word. Flow runs in its own pane within your internet browser, allowing you to access your library wherever you have access to the internet.

The Research Commons team offers monthly 2-hour workshops to get you started with the new RefWorks. In these hands-on workshops, you'll learn how to import and organize your research citations and format your bibliographies in the citation style of your choice. You'll leave the workshops with a basic database of research citations and the skills to build on it.

NOTICE: Systematic downloading or harvesting articles, citations, metadata (e.g. using citation managers such as EndNote or Zotero) is strictly prohibited. (You must contact lib-license@lists.ubc.ca. Permission is required or a Text and Data Mining Package should be purchased.)
