Question: I created a folder in my personal account and I think these references would be better off in the group account my lab shares. How do I do this?
Answer: Yes, you can transfer references from one account to another with ease.
This is a two step process. First export references from the RefWorks account
To export references:
Log-in to your RefWorks account.
Select References, then choose Export.
Choose All References, My List or a specific Folder to export.
Select RefWorks Tagged Format and click Export to Text File.
You will be prompted to save a .txt file to your computer or flash drive.
Step 2- Import the references into the correct RefWorks account
To import references in RefWorks Tagged Format:
Log-in to the RefWorks account where the citations are being added.
Select References, Import.
Select RefWorks Tagged Format as the data source.
Click the Browse button and locate the .txt file you wish to import.
The newly imported references will appear in the Last Imported Folder.
Note: Reference ID numbers are not transferred when exporting or importing. Any references imported from one RefWorks account to another, will be assigned new Ref IDs according to the numbering in your account.
