If you are still editing documents made with WnC 3, you must convert them to Write-n-Cite 4 (WnC4) before September 30 to preserve their links to your Legacy database. Use these documents below to help you decide whether you need to convert your WnC documents and if so, how:
RefWorks is a web-based citation management tool that helps you store, organize, share, and format references. This tool is essential for staff members that publish, perform research, or need to manage article citations.
The BC Cancer library purchases a license for RefWorks in order to make it free to all BC Cancer staff.
Why did we choose Refworks?
Other citation managers are available, but the Library may not be able to support them.
At https://refworks.proquest.com, click on the "Create Account" link.
Enter your BC Cancer, BCGSC, or BCCRC email address and click "Check."
You will receive a "success" message and you will be asked to create a password. Your institutional email becomes your login name.
An activation email will be sent and you'll need to validate your account to continue.
Once you click on the link in the activation email, you are directed back to RefWorks to enter your name, role and regional affiliation. You'll also be asked if you'd like to install the "Save to RefWorks" browser bookmarklet tool (a great way to capture data from web pages!) and if you'd like to install one of the article writing apps (Write-N-Cite for Word or RefWorks Add-on for Google Docs).
You'll be brought directly into your new account and are ready to begin adding to your collection!
Note: For workstations on the BC Cancer network, the Word app, Write-n-Cite, must be requested from IMITS. See the tab on the left for details.
We don't recommend creating new Legacy accounts.
You may wish to continue using Legacy Refworks if you:
have major documents in progress, or
are part of a working group that is using Legacy RefWorks, or
need to use the text codes (squirrely brackets) for online document processing
