RefMobile: RefWorks for Mobile Devices

April 23, 2009

RefMobile is a version of RefWorks for mobile and smart phones, as well as PDAs, that allows you to access and view your references, manage folders and even add information to the Notes field of your references.

To use RefMobile, you must be online.

In addition to being able to access and manage your references, RefMobile has a feature – SmartAdd – that will search the web for references based on a digital object identifier (DOI), PubMed ID (PMID), PubMed Central ID (PMCID), ISSN/ISBN number or by author and publication year or even search using part of a title. References located by SmartAdd can even be imported into your RefWorks account via RefMobile. Any user can access RefMobile at

Please note: you must have a group code to access RefMobile.
To get the NYU Group Code, email, and include your NYU NetID.

Share Your Research with RefShare

March 2, 2007

RefWorks is a free (to the NYU community) web-based program you can use to organize your research. Now you can share your RefWorks citations with colleagues anywhere. In the folders menu of every NYU RefWorks account you will see an option to “share folders.” When you share a folder, you get a unique URL to that folder which you can share with anyone who has web access. Outside users will have READ ONLY access to the database, but will be able to sort, search and export citations in a wide variety of output styles (MLA, APA, etc.) You can even create an RSS feed for your folder. As you add new citations to the folder, subscribers will see the updates. More on how to use RefShare.
