Save to RefWorks

The save to RefWorks bookmarklet tries to save references directly from web pages to RefWorks. This has variable success but is worth a try. Always check the reference and edit as neccessary.

To add the Save to RefWorks bookmarklet to your internet favorites bar:

  • Click for Tools
  • Click Install Save to RefWorks and follow instructions to save to your favorites toolbar (this may work better in Chrome than IE).
  • Save to RefWorks should appear below the web address

Navigate to the Web page (e.g. journal article, report or other document) you wish to reference and click Save to RefWorks.

  • RefWorks will try to create a Reference. If successful you will see a window with the details.
  • Click the Save to RefWorks button at the bottom of the Window to export it to your RefWorks account. Check the details of the reference carefully and edit as necessary.
