RefWorks Announces Launch Of RefMobile

Bethesda, MD, USA (March, 2009) – RefWorks announced the launch of RefMobile, a new interface that enables students and researchers to use the RefWorks web-based research management service from anywhere, via web-enabled mobile phones, smart phones, and personal data assistants (PDAs).

The RefMobile interface gives users immediate access to the most commonly used RefWorks functions, including searching their entire RefWorks databases, viewing references by folders, adding and removing references from folders, creating new folders, and adding comments to Notes fields. Users can also efficiently import new references to their RefWorks account using the new SmartAdd feature.

With SmartAdd, users simply enter basic identifying information for a publication, such as ISBN number, digital object identifier (DOI) number, partial title, or author and publication year, and SmartAdd searches the Internet for the reference and import it to RefWorks.

“Researchers and students are increasingly on the go, but need to stay highly productive,” says Colleen Stempien, Executive Director of Operations for RefWorks-COS. “RefMobile puts RefWorks’ world-class research management tools at the fingertips of researchers whenever they need them, wherever they happen to be.”

In 2001, the introduction of RefWorks revolutionized bibliographic management by making it accessible from any web-enabled computer. RefMobile demonstrates RefWorks-COS’ continued commitment to providing world-class research services and support to researchers at every level, in every discipline, everywhere.
