More about RefWorks & Output Style

NOTE! RefWorks will format *most* of your bibliography in your chosen Output Style.  However, ALWAYS double-check the accuracy of the citations in your RefWorks bibliography, since RefWorks does NOT:

  • italicize names of species, organisms
  • consistently include author initials if author name is hyphenated
  • always abbreviate journal titles
  • correctly capitalize proper nouns
