RefWorks Contract Expires - Library Guide Helps You with References


The contract for the RefWorks reference management program expires at the end of 2021. Turku University Library has made a guide for you to ease transferring your references.

The library has created a guide to answer the most common questions including the expiration of the contract and the transfer of references from RefWorks.


The current RefWorks subscription of the University of Turku is valid until 31 December 2021, after which RefWorks cannot be used. Also, RefWorks does not sell individual licenses, so you might want to store your references either in another reference management program or in any other way before 2022.


To export your references in RefWorks, you can transfer them to another reference management program, such as Zotero or Mendeley, or in another way. Free versions of both Zotero and Mendeley are available in the library reference management guide.


Library provides you instructions on the export of references and the introduction of new programmes:

Library also advises you on exporting references and how to use Zotero or Mendeley:
