RefWorks 2.0: RefMobile

What is RefMobile?


RefMobile is the new mobile application for RefWorks that enables users to use core RefWorks functions from any web-enabled mobile device, like phones or PDAs.

Working with RefMobile

RefMobile (www.refworks.com/mobile) gives you access to your references in RefWorks from your smart phone, mobile phone or PDA.  RefMobile provides specific functionality including:  

  • Searching within your RefWorks account

  • Viewing ALL references and file attachments (if the attachment type is supported by your mobile device)

  • Viewing references by folder

  • Adding or removing references to/from a folder

  • Creating new folders

  • Entering new references via SmartAdd -- which locates references on the web when you enter an ISBN, DOI, PubMed ID (PMID), first author and pub year, or partial title  

  • Adding comments or text to the Notes field of your references
