RefWorks is an online research management, writing and collaboration tool, designed to help researchers easily gather, manage, store and share all types of information, as well as generate citations and bibliographies.

See RefWorks' own video tutorials and guides.  

Note: When exporting references to RefWorks from library search results or other databases which support it, it's best to be logged in to RefWorks first.

Open Research

The Library supports the University's commitment to open research through two research repositories:

  • ResearchSPAce archives the University's published research outputs, such as journal articles, books, and PhDs.  
  • BathSPAdata archives the underlying data from University research, including documentation from creative projects.
