Help With ~ RefWorks: Add References to RefWorks

1. Export References to RefWorks

The library catalog and many library databases allow you to export references directly into RefWorks. Look for the export or save command.

For PubMed, follow these instructions.

In the Google Scholar example below, click on the quotation marks and then click RefWorks to export the citation.

2. Drag-and-Drop PDFs

Drag and drop a file onto the center pane or select Add > Upload Document and select the file. The file can be in any format (PDF, Word).

The file is uploaded as a reference with type Generic. RefWorks attempts to automatically extract as much information as it can from the uploaded file. Edit the reference to correct and complete the information.

If you drag and drop multiple files at one time, a reference is created for each file.
