RefWorks LITE

RefWorks LITE is a FREE version of RefWorks.

  • The only way to obtain lifetime access to RefWorks LITE is to already have an account with RefWorks Paid through UND by June 30th, 2019. After this date, all RefWorks Paid accounts will be downgraded to RefWorks LITE.
  • If you do not have a RefWorks Paid account by June 30th, 2019, you will not be able to ever access, or get a new account with, RefWorks LITE.
  • RefWorks does not offer accounts to individuals.

IMPORTANT NOTE: If you are using the old version of RefWorks, or RefWorks Legacy, you must upgrade to the new RefWorks BEFORE June 30th, 2019 to be eligible for a RefWorks LiITE lifetime account.

RefWorks Legacy accounts will not be migrated to RefWorks LITE.

Quick FAQs

1. What if I already have a RefWorks account, but I am graduating or leaving UND?

You are free to change the email address associated with your account after account creation and activation. RefWorks asks for a UND email address to confirm institutional membership upon account creation only. Once you have an account, whether or not you are still at UND on June 30th, 2019, your account will be converted to a RefWorks LITE account.


2. Can I register for a new RefWorks LITE account as a new user after June 30th?

No. RefWorks Paid users will have lifetime access to RefWorks LITE accounts after June 30th, 2019. A RefWorks LITE account will not be created for those without RefWorks accounts or for those using our older version, RefWorks Legacy.

Write - N - Cite Users - Important Note

Word documents that used Write-N-Cite should still be readable but none of the citations will be editable. If you were in the middle of working on a paper, you will need to reinsert your citations using your new citation management tool of choice (e.g. Mendeley, Zotero). For completed documents, you may want to consider saving a second draft with Write-N-Cite’s field codes removed to prevent potential issues, but it’s not necessary — the documents should continue to be readable.
