Importing Records from Information Databases


The method of importing records from information databases available to us varies according to the
database
. There are two main methods for
bringing/importing
records into

RefWorks
:



1

step
: directly from the database by using the
Save to RefWorks
button

e.g. this method is used by
ProQuest,
Scopus,

Web of Knowledge/Web of Science

and

Ovid.



2

step
: save the

references as a .txt (text) file
,
open RefWorks and import the .txt file

t
hrough
filters for the database, e.g.
IngentaConnect.

The 1
-
step and 2
-
step methods work because there are RefWorks
filters

in place to allow the
re
cords to come through in the correct format. If RefWorks filters do not exist for a database the
only way in which to bring records in is to manually type them into your account. See
RefWorks
User Guide

for instruction. Downloading of records into RefWorks from Word or Excel documents is
possible
but very time consuming


we advise manual creation

of these records within RefWorks.


The majority of the databases for which we have access allow either the 1
-
step or 2
-
step process.
The databases listed here allow records to be imported into RefWorks.

Click on the alphabetical index below to navigate t
o the database(s) you require for instructions on
how to import references into RefWorks.
