Importing information to the new RefWorks is ridiculously easy. We will refer to RefWorks as RW for the rest of this note.
Citing articles in Word is very similar to “Legacy” RW.
Now for some details.
Once you have identified articles from PubMed you wish to save to RW, click on the Save to RefWorks bookmarklet. You will see a list of the articles on your PubMed page, check off the ones you want, then Save to RefWorks at the bottom of the page. See image below. That’s it!
An exception is Embase. Choose the articles you want from Embase, select Export (see image below).
For websites, click on Save to RefWorks bookmarklet. RefWorks, like all reference managers, has trouble finding the information it needs to create a citation from websites. Always check the information to make sure RW has it right
- Go to scholar.google.com.
Click on Settings
Change Bibliography Manager to RefWorks
Finally, you may organize what you put in RW by checking the boxes of the articles you would like to place in a folder. Then click on the folder icon (red arrow below). Finally either create a new folder or add checked articles to an existing folder.
The final installment of this series will be about using RefWorks to add citations and references to Microsoft Word or GoogleDocs.
Final post in this series will discuss how to use the new RW to cite article in Word or GoogleDocs. –Whit
