Would you like to see all of your RefWorks references listed in APA format or MLA or Turabian? You can set up your display to show any type of publication style that RefWorks includes… and that’s hundreds of them.

This is probably what your references look like now:

But if you want to quickly see what your references would look like in your bibliography, you can customize the display to show any type of publication style. This way you don’t have to print out a bibliography every time you want to see if your citations are going to look correct.

Click on Customize

Click on Customize

Select the publication style you want. (This time I chose APA 6th ed., APA style annotated, and MLA7th ed.) Click on save customized settings.

Choose the publication style you want from hundreds of choices.

Now you can choose from any of the display types listed in your change view menu.

This is what it would look like in MLA 7th edition.

Pretty cool, Huh?
