Exporting from New RefWorks

Exporting from New RefWorks

If you want to maintain the same folder structure in your new reference manager, you should export your citations from RefWorks one folder at a time.

It's recommended that you save each export file created below with the name of the folder, so each is easily identifiable when importing to your new reference manager.

To Export:

  1. Login to your New RefWorks account.
  2. From the left navigation pane, click on All References (If exporting your entire account) or My Folders and select a folder for export from the list.
  3. Check the Select All box (just above your list of references) and click the Share icon. 
  4. Choose Export References.
  5. Choose the following options:
    • From:
      All references in [Folder Name]
    • Format:
      RIS Format
    • Click Export
  6. Make note of where you export/save the file, because you'll need it to import into your new reference manager.
  7. Repeat these steps for each folder, then follow the import instructions for your new reference manager.
