RefWorks is an online research management, writing and collaboration tool designed to help researchers and students easily gather, manage, store and share all types of information, as well as generate citations and bibliographies.
RefWorks has numerous publishing partners that allow direct export of references into RefWorks - for example, databases such as Scopus, EbscoHost, SpringerLink. References can be formatted in different citation styles (for example - Harvard, MLA, OSCOLA, Chicago 15th edition) and inserted into Word documents using the Write'n'Cite application.
