RefWorks is an online citation management, writing, and collaboration system that is offered free of charge by the UH Libraries to all students, staff, and faculty. RefWorks helps you to organize and manage the references you consult during the research process as well as cite those references within your work. RefWorks supports hundreds of online databases and citation styles covering a broad range of subject areas and disciplines.
A citation is a way of giving credit to individuals for their creative and intellectual works that you utilized to support your research. Citations can also be used to help locate particular sources and combat plagiarism. Typically, citations can include the author's name, date, title, journal title, or DOI (Digital Object Identifier).

There are thousands of ways to cite resources. These citation styles dictate the information required for a citation and how it should be ordered. The style you use will depend on your academic field and the requirements of the professor/journal for which you are writing:
