One of the difficulties with RefWorks in the past has been when you need to use an Import Filter, as it’s often tricky to know which is the right one to use. We’ve now made a few changes which should make this a bit easier.
If you want to import a record try this (remember, though, if a database supports the Direct Export option, it’s still easier to use that!)
- Click on the References and select Import
- Under Import Filter/Data Source, select University of Warwick
- Choose the name of the database you saved the references from
- Click the Browse button to locate the file you saved, then click Import.
Note: occasionally, databases are available from more than one supplier. If this is the case, you need to make sure you choose the correct one – you can normally get the name of the software or supplier from the database itself.
Thanks to Martin Wolf and Terry Bucknell of the University of Liverpool for their help with this.
