How to organize and manage folders and subfolders in RefWorks

Once a researcher has searched a topic and selected references, it’s time to start organising.

ProQuest RefWorks supports the research process and provides a variety of useful folder options to help users better organize their research.

This document covers the following folder types:

1) Last Imported Folder – Organizes the last 30 days of imports into discrete, selectable sets of references.

2) Not In Folder – Displays all the references that have not yet been categorized into a user’s folders.

3) Deleted Folder – Contains all items that have been deleted in the past 30 days.

4) Subfolders – allows the creation of folders within folders
