What are tags?

Tags are words used to describe your references/citations. 

Adding tags to references provides an additional way to organize and manage your research across folders in your RefWorks account.

NOTE:  RefWorks automatically supplies tags to some references/citations

How do I create tags?

  • Click on My Folders
  • Locate the reference/citation to which you would like to add a tag
  • Click on the box in front of the reference/citation
  • When the record for the reference/citation appears in the right column, click on Add Tags

  • Click on Save in the upper right corner
