ProQuest Acquires RefWorks

ProQuest (, a Cambridge Information Group company (, has acquired RefWorks LLC (, a provider of web-based research management, writing, and collaboration services for the academic and research communities. Cambridge Information Group has had an ownership position in RefWorks since May 2001. Complete ownership will enable ProQuest to integrate RefWorks into its Community of Science (COS) business, which serves the same market.

Jeff Baer, ProQuest vice president and general manager of what is now known as RefWorks/COS, will lead the newly merged group. RefWorks’ tools—best known for their abilities to help researchers easily gather, manage, store, and share all types of information—are uniquely complementary to COS Scholar Universe. COS Scholar Universe is known for its networking capability, which provides direct access to more than 1.4 million active researchers from around the world working in more than 200 disciplines. With RefWorks and COS joining forces, researchers will be able to turn to one source for tools that help them identify colleagues with similar research interests around the world, establish alliances, and manage joint research projects.

RefWorks CEO Earl Beutler will remain a consultant to support strategic projects from RefWorks/COS. The remaining senior management team of RefWorks will report directly into Baer. The other RefWorks staff will be combined with the COS staff to create a single, integrated organization.
