You can access RefWorks at - but first you need to have created an account. 

To create a RefWorks account:

  1. Go to and click the “Create account” link.
  2. Fill in your information making sure to use your email address (you can’t sign up with,, etc.).  Using your institutional email address will ensure that RefWorks recognises you as a member of University of Bolton. 

Once you activate your account (you'll receive an email with a link to complete the registration process), you’ll get access immediately and can get started managing your documents.

RefWorks comes with unlimited document storage and an option to keep using the system once you have left the University.
