Problems with Direct Export from OVID Medline – Alternative method

There currently appears to be a problem using the Direct Export feature of RefWorks with the Ovid Medline database. There is, however, a slightly more complicated way of getting the references into your RefWorks account, using the instructions below:

Stage One: Saving the references in Medline
  1. Do your search in Medline as normal and mark the references you want to keep.
  2. Go to the Results Manager at the bottom of the screen.
  3. Under Result Format, select Ovid.
  4. Click on Save.
  5. On the next screen, select Windows Style Linefeeds and click Continue.
  6. Click Save to disk.
  7. Give the file a name and choose where you wish to save it, as normal.
Stage Two: Importing the references into RefWorks
  1. Log into your RefWorks account.
  2. Click on the References menu and select Import.
  3. On the next screen, under Import Filter/Data Source, select University of Warwick.
  4. Under Database, select Medline [OVID].
  5. Under Import Data from the following text file, click the Browse button.
  6. Find the file you saved in Stage One and select it.
  7. Click the Import button.
