RefWorks and EndNote are both citation management programs that allow you to:

  • create personal database of references
  • directly send references from research databases into your perspoal database of references
  • insert references from your personal database into a word processing document (such as Word) and format a bibliography in a wide variety of citation styles.

There are also some differences between the RefWorks and EndNote:

  • RefWorks is an online program that requires you to register for an account. RefWorks is available to Tufts-affiliated users.
  • EndNote is a software program that must be loaded onto a specific computer. Tufts maintains a campus-wide annual subscription for EndNote. Please be aware that installation of this software is available for computers that are:
    • Tufts University owned or leased 

    • Personally-owned by patrons with a primary affiliation of Faculty, Student, or Staff in the Tufts' White Pages

    To have EndNote installed, call 617-636-2947 or send an email request to it@tufts.edu.
