New interface for RefWorks

RefWorks are introducing a new interface (called "RefWorks 2.0"), and you can start using it now. Those of you who have been using RefWorks as your reference management tool for a little while are probably used to the "Classic" interface which looks like this:

You can switch to the new interface by clicking "RefWorks 2.0" in the top right corner, and the same RefWorks account will look like this:

At the moment you can still switch back to the Classic interface by clicking "RefWorks Classic" at the top. Importantly though, the Classic interface will no longer be available from August onwards, so it's a good time to start finding your way around the new 2.0 interface.

RefWorks 2.0 is essentially just an upgrade to the interface, so you'll get all the same features you're used to, but hopefully you'll find it easier to use, and more intuitive.

RefWorks have put together some materials which will introduce you to the new interface; on the right hand side click RefWorks 2.0 Preview to watch a video, or click Help > Tutorials to see a selection of tutorials on different elements of the 2.0 interface.

And you can always contact us if you have any questions or want more information.
