Q. How do I clear the Privacy Consent screen in RefWorks?
RefWorks have begun asking users to consent to a privacy notice. It is entirely up to you whether you consent or not. But be aware, if you do not consent, your account will be erased and there will be nothing RefWorks or the NCU Library can do to get it back.
Your RefWorks account will only be removed if you choose to click the button that says No, I do not consent. Please remove my RefWorks account. If you are currently able to access and use your RefWorks account, you probably already consented.
If your RefWorks screen displays the above error, try the following to clear it:
- Instead of accessing RefWorks through the NCU Library link https://refworks-proquest-com.proxy1.ncu.edu, try going to RefWorks directly: https://refworks.proquest.com (new) or https://refworks.com (legacy).
Firefox Private Window
Chrome Incognito Window
Internet Explorer Private Browsing
- Log out of the RefWorks writing tool add-ins (Write-N-Cite, RefWorks Citation Manager, and GoogleDocs plugin)
If the error message still appears on your browser, report it to email@example.com
