To add an item to RefWorks, click the Add a reference icon at the top of the page. If you plan on adding the item to an existing collection, click on the collection first, then click the Add a reference icon .
You'll have three options:
Regardless of which option you choose, RefWorks uses its document recognition feature to attempt to auto-complete the reference fields on the page. RefWorks’s document recognition feature is compiled from a combination of authoritative citation sources, ProQuest databases, and end-user generated content and is continually revised and optimized to deliver the best possible results.
You can change the reference type, manually edit the reference fields and additional fields can be added using the Add more fields drop down box at the bottom of the page.
If you do not have a file to upload, simply populate the blank fields by typing in the necessary information.
Once you have manually added your item using one of these options, click Save and your item will be added to your RefWorks library.
If you want to add your documents to a specific collection, make sure you’re viewing the collection first, then drag and drop the file(s). If you’re dragging multiple files, RefWorks will create a separate item for each document. Otherwise, drag and drop documents in the All Documents view and you can file them in collections once they are uploaded.
If we don't support importing from your reference manager yet, try exporting your references and import the file.
Need to import from a file, no problem. RefWorks supports hundreds of formats including RIS, BibTeX, and PubMed. Drag and drop the file into RefWorks (into the box below), or use the link to “select a file from your computer” and upload it.
