Using RefWorks to Manage Your PDF Collection

RefWorks is a popular easy-to-use citation management application but has limited options for working with PDFs. At the moment it is not possible to directly import PDFs into a folder. However, in the edit view you can upload the PDF as a file attachment:

RefWorksPDF2

RefWorksPDF1

 

 

 

 

The text of PDFs and other file attachments may be searched by selecting Attachments in the Advanced Search/Search Field drop-down menu and entering a search term.

RefWorksPDF3

Note that in addition to PDFs a file attachment can be a Word document, an image file or  other file types.

For more information on file attachments view this Attachment Feature Fact document.
