Upcoming changes in REFWORKS on the UMCG network

14 September 2020

As from Friday, September 18, the way Refworks has to be used on a UMCG-computer or through is going to change.

• Your UMCG-computer will get a new shortcut for "Refworks for Word" at "Start, all programs". You'll ALWAYS have to use this shortcut in order for Refworks to function within MS Word.

It won't be possible to open a Refworks reference from within MS Word or Windows Explorer anymore. Instead you'll have to open "Refworks for Word", and from the menu "file -> open", search for your file.

• Via this shortcut will be made available on the Windows 7 production desktop, but also within the 'Tab' Applications.
See the picture below.

• The old Refworks-plugin in “UMC Groningen applicaties” in the virtual environment will no longer be available.

• We have to change the way Refwork works within the UMCG, because our ICT department is changing the handling of office plugins.

You can read more about this.

• For any questions concerning this matter or reference management in general, you can contact
