RefWorks is a bibliographic management software that allows University of Malta registered users to create a database of references by importing citations for books, articles from online databases (such as JSTOR, PsycInfo, IEEE and others) and the Library’s Online Catalogue. The references can then be used for creating bibliographies for dissertations, long essays, papers and assignments. RefWorks allows users to produce bibliographies formatted in any of the major bibliographic styles (such as APA, MLA, Chicago etc.).

In order to use RefWorks, you must log in with your UoM IT Account.
