Entering References into RefWorks manually

RefWorks have recently made a small change to the RefWorks interface, which makes it easier for you when you are entering several references manually.

Once you have typed your first reference, instead of clicking the Save button, click Save and Add New. This will save the reference you have just created, then bring up a blank form to allow you to create a new one straight away.

Once you have entered your final reference, simply click on the Add button.
