RefWorks is a tool used for the organization and management of bibliographies. The user can create his/her own database by importing references either automatically from online bibliographic databases or manually (including text files). References can be arranged according to several manual styles (MLA, APA, Chicago Manual of Style, Turabian, etc.) and used for bibliographies in articles, studies, etc.
