Writing Accountability Groups (WAGs) are writing accountability groups, made up of your peers, to encourage a consistent writing routine. Groups usually consist of 4-8 people and meet over a 10-week period. WAGs have been known to increase writing frequency, time management, and organization. Visit Johns Hopkins WAGs site to learn more about these groups and get one started.

The WAG Toolkit includes videos, templates, and additional training resources to help you get started.


ORCID is an independent non-profit effort to provide an open registry of unique researcher identifiers and open services to link research activities and organizations to these identifiers. ORCID provides a persistent digital identifier that distinguishes you from other researchers. Learn more at

Researchers can link their research with Johns Hopkins, which is a member institution. Note that in January, 2020, the NIH mandates that individuals supported by research training, fellowship, research education, and career development awards submit their ORCID. Read more in the NIH's July 10, 2019 notice.

Managing Citations: RefWorks

RefWorks is available to the Johns Hopkins community. It is a web-based program you can use to organize your research. RefWorks bibliographies are stored on the RefWorks server and are available from any computer with Internet access.  

There are two options: Legacy RefWorks and ProQuest® RefWorks.  Both are available to the Johns Hopkins community.  However, by January 2018 all RefWorks Legacy users will need to transfer to ProQuest® RefWorks.

Learn more, including tools other than RefWorks, on our Citation Management Guide.
