RefWorks (ProQuest)

Creating an account

If you are new to RefWorks, you will need to sign up for an account.  Once signed up, you will be able to simply login to your RefWorks account from any machine. 

There are two ways to create an account:

  • You can sign up with your Solent email address and a password of your choice which will then become your login (you can go into your account settings and then associate this login with Solent if you wish, allowing you to then sign in with either your email address or university login in future).
  • You can sign up using the Institution login which will allow you to login with your Solent University login details (if you wish to use additional RefWorks tools you will need to create a separate password once logged in).
