CIEC6350: Creativity and Play in Early Childhood: RefWorks

A guide to finding and citing articles

Importing Citations

Library databases allow you to export your citations to RefWorks. While each database vendor is different, all provide an option to identify or mark items that are of interest, and then export your citations to RefWorks.

Organizing your Information

You can create folders in RefWorks. This means you can create different folders for different projects, or different folders for varied aspects of a particular project. The same item can exist simultaneously in more than one folder.

If you think that you've lost a reference, check the folder called, Not in folder. This is where references go if they have been imported but not put into a folder.

What is RefWorks

Getting Started

Click on this link or in the link in the box above.

Once you link to the New RefWorks you must create an account. When you create an account, your username must be the same as your WPUNJ email address. The email address identifies you as a WPUNJ student, and can help you if you forget your login name or password. You do not need to use the same WPUNJ password.

When you access RefWorks from off-campus you will first need to log-in as a WPUNJ user, then at the RefWorks screen you will need to use your WPUNJ email address and whatever password you have chosen.

Creating a Reference List

When ready to create your list of References:

  • Select folder or citations for your list of references.
  • Select ", or Create bibliography.
  • If you haven't selected the citation style, select it.
  • Click on Create Bibliography.
