RefWorks Contract Expires - Still Time to Save Your References


The RefWorks reference management programme contract expires at the end of 2021. RefWorks users have to move their references out of the programme during December and save them somewhere else. If you need advice on the transfer of references, you can familiarize yourself with the library's instructions, videos or participate in training.


The current RefWorks order of the University of Turku is valid until December 31, 2021, after which RefWorks will no longer be available via Turku University Library. RefWorks also does not sell individual, personal licenses, so you might want to save your references either to another reference management programme or elsewhere before 2022.


In order to save your references from RefWorks, you can transfer them to another reference manager, such as Zotero or Mendeley, or other recovered. Free versions of both Zotero and Mendeley are available. More information can be found in the library reference management guide, among other things.


The library supports the transfer of references and the introduction of new programmes with written instructions and videos. On our help page you can also find answers to the most frequently asked questions:
