Refworks Introduces New Current Awareness Service - RefAware

Harnessing the speed and accessibility of the Internet, RefAware provides a comprehensive, real-time picture of today's global research

RefWorks, the leading provider of web-based research management, writing and collaboration tools for the academic and research communities, has announced the release of RefAware, a new online personal research assistant and monitoring service that enables members of the academic community and other researchers to stay abreast of the latest publications and research in their field instantly.  This simple-to-use service allows researchers to be alerted when new articles are available - most within hours of publication and many even pre-publication.

RefAware covers over 8,000 peer-reviewed journals and other non-referred sources of information in six specific areas of coverage - Life Science, Biology, and Medicine; Physical Sciences; Engineering; Social Sciences; Arts & Humanities; and Business. With the ability to create up to ten separate search queries, researchers can now use RefAware to keep them informed of "up-to-the-minute" information based on their unique interests, offering comprehensive, real-time picture of today's global research.

"RefAware is truly a valuable online tool for researchers.  Our proprietary advanced web-scraping technology, allows RefAware to constantly scour the Web for new references," said Jeff Baer, General Manager, RefWorks. "Any new updates are available multiple times throughout each day, and users can choose to receive email alerts notifying them of new results. This, along with our simple-to-use interfaces, gives RefAware a real edge on other tools that are available on the market today."

"Now that we realized the search power the service provided, we have been using the tool more intensively," stated Randolph D. Glickman, Ph.D., Senderoff Professor of Vision Research at the University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio.  "In fact, RefAware found a very recent paper for us that may prove to be critical in shaping a new direction for a research initiative we have started in the lab.  Because this area is new for us, RefAware has been very helpful in getting us up to speed quickly."
