Flow disappears and becomes the new RefWorks
From January 18th 2016 Flow has become the new and improved RefWorks from ProQuest.
The new RefWorks combines the functionality of the legacy version of RefWorks with Flow’s infrastructure. This new product combines a powerful bibliographic manager with Flow’s collaborating tools and full text document management capabilities.
If you had a Flow account:
If you had a Flow account, on January 18th you will have automatically migrated to RefWorks. There’s no need to do anything, as all your information has been linked to your new RefWorks account. However, we do recommend you make the following changes to make the most of this improved tool:
- Bookmark the new URL to access RefWorks
- Uninstall the Save to Flow bookmark, and replace it with the Save to RefWorks bookmarklet
- Uninstall ProQuest for Word and replace it with the latest version of Write-N-Cite for Windows
- For more information, please see: User Guide. Upgrade from Flow to New RefWorks
If you’re currently working with an account from the previous RefWorks:
The previous RefWorks version (RefWorks Legacy) will be available until September 2017. Therefore, if you’re currently working with an account from the previous RefWorks you will need to migrate your account before that date. ProQuest recommends waiting until the second quarter of 2016 to do this:
We recommend waiting until Q2 of 2016 to fully transition to the new RefWorks. When the full roll out of the new improved product is rolled out.
