If you wish to export your RefWorks account to another format (for example, if you want to transfer your references to a different piece of software, such as EndNote), you can do so using the instructions below. Full details on how to save your references and import them into the EndNote software, can be found on the EndNote website.
- Log in to your RefWorks account as normal.
- Click on the File menu and select Export.
- Choose your preferred format (for most purposes, you should select either Bibliographic Software or Tab Delimited).
- Click the Export to Text File button.
- A new window should appear containing details of all your references. If you have a pop-up blocker installed, it may not appear automatically, in which case, click on the text Download it.
- Click on the File menu for either Internet Explorer or Firefox and select Save As… (Save Page As… in Firefox).
- Choose where you would like to save your file and give it a file name.
- Your references have now been saved and can now be imported into other software.

RefWorks makes use of pop-ups to work properly, so you will need to make sure your web browser is set to allow them. This is particularly true if you want to export references from a database into your RefWorks account.
If nothing happens when you try to export references, make sure your web browser is set to allow pop-ups, then try again. This simple process will often solve many problems experienced by RefWorks users.
To disable pop-ups in Firefox, click Tools, Options then Content and untick the option Block pop-up windows followed by OK.
To disable pop-ups in Internet Explorer, click Tools, Pop-up Blocker, Turn Off Pop-up Blocker
Alternatively you can set both Firefox and Internet Explorer to allow pop-ups for particular sites.
For security reasons, you are strongly advised to turn your pop-up blocker back on once you have finished using RefWorks.

If you find that the Direct Export option isn’t working when you try and take references from a database and put them into your RefWorks account, it may be because your web browser is storing a cached version of the page. This is a problem you’re most likely to come across when using Business Source Premier (BSP), but it might affect others too.
To clear your Cache:
Internet Explorer Users: Click the Tools menu, then select Internet Options. Make sure the General tab is displayed and under the section Temporary Internet Files, click Delete Files then OK, followed by OK again.
Firefox Users: Click Tools, then Options. Click the Privacy button and click the Clear button next to Cache, then OK.

Writing about web page http://www2.warwick.ac.uk/services/library/electronicresources/refworks/export/
A list of databases which allow you to export citations automatically to RefWorks in the correct format is now available. There are two methods:
- Databases which support Direct Export (where citations are downloaded straight to your RefWorks account) can be found on the A-Z list of databases. Items which carry the RefWorks logo support Direct Export.
- Databases which require citations to be imported can be found in a separate list.
Thanks to Steve Barber for adding the RefWorks logo to the relevant A-Z entries

Following some recent training sessions, a number of people have asked which databases support direct exports (where references can be downloaded automatically into Refworks) has arisen. Although RefWorks provide a list of supported services (see the Refworks Direct Export services page) , this only lists the platform/software (e.g. OVID, CSA), rather than providing the names of databases themselves.
Some people have commented that they don't always know the name of the software and so find it difficult when importing their references to RefWorks and feel it would be useful to have this information somewhere on the library's webpages.
There are two ways we could try to do this. Firstly, in the A-Z list of databases, the RefWorks logo could be displayed next to supported databases. The second way is to have a list (either split by the platform or subject-based) giving the databases supported.
If anyone has any views on which they would find most useful, please post your comments below.
