This page highlights how to use RefWorks on an iPad. Feel free to contact any of the health sciences librarians if you have a question.
RefWorks is a web-based bibliography manager that makes it easy to import references to articles, books, web pages and other types of sources from online databases. RefWorks is licensed by the University of Cincinnati and is available at no cost to all students, faculty and staff. Training and tutorials for all devices are available, but there are some specific differences when using RefWorks on an iPad.
The Scopus database interface provides a very straight-forward mechanism for exporting references into RefWorks.
Typically, the preferred method is to save multiple references to a folder and export simultaneously; however, there is a limitation on the iPad interface that prevents exporting multiple citations. There is a work-around to export references one at a time from the detailed record view.
The RefWorks Write-N-Cite add-in is not currently supported by the Microsoft Word iPad app; however, if you have installed the Mac desktop version of Office365, you can use the RefWorks Citation Manager add-in.
If your iPad is your only device, you may also use the One Line Cite option, until RefWorks makes the Write-N-Cite add-in compatible with the Word iPad app.
