Help With ~ RefWorks: Move from Legacy to New RefWorks

Things To Consider Before Migrating

Things to Consider before Migrating from Legacy to New RefWorks

Research Papers
Papers started in legacy RefWorks using Write-N-Cite will not be compatible with new RefWorks. We recommend users keep their current legacy RefWorks account until they complete their work. For any new papers you begin, use New RefWorks.

We do not recommend that users change tools if they are working on a deadline for grants, dissertations or theses. The best time to migrate is after a project is completed, or when you have ample time to make the migration and learn the new tool before your next project is due.

Shared Folders
Shared folders will have to be “re-shared” in the new RefWorks and will have new URLs for public sharing.

Multiple Accounts
The New RefWorks does not currently allow an individual to have multiple accounts. There are currently two options: 1) Create a New RefWorks account and import the references from multiple accounts into a single account; or 2) Do nothing now. Proquest will be developing an option that supports group/multiple accounts.
