Sharing Your RefWorks Database

  1. I'm working on a group project. Can we share a RefWorks account?
  2. Can more than one person access my account at the same time?

I'm working on a group project. Can we share a RefWorks account?

Yes. RefWorks does not limit the number of accounts you create. Every account can have two types of access – full and read-only. Full access requires everyone to log in with the same login name and password. Read-only requries users to log in with the login name and a read-only password that has been established by an account owner with full access. Read-only access allows people to search, export and print bibliographies, but not add, edit or delete references.

In addition, each record in a database has five empty fields (User Defined 1 thru 5) that can be used to record comments from group members.

Can more than one person access my account at the same time?

Yes, multiple users can access your account simultaneously.
