RefWorks-COS announced the release of its RefWorksTM 2.0 research management, writing, and collaboration tool. Currently in beta, RefWorks 2.0 is a new user interface for the RefWorksTM service, putting all of RefWorks' at users' fingertips.
Planning and development for RefWorks 2.0 began with reviewing feedback, analyzing usage habits and conducting surveys of RefWorks users globally. The new interface focuses on usability and the functional needs of end users, incorporating contemporary design elements to make all of RefWorks' functions and features easily accessible.
During the beta period, both the RefWorks "Classic" and RefWorks 2.0 interface will run in tandem, providing RefWorks administrators and users ample time to familiarize themselves prior to the transition.
An updated RefWorks logo is also being introduced with the new interface, along with a new RefWorks-COS corporate website which contains information about all RefWorks-COS products, as well as links to logins, support, training and the new Resource Center.
