RefWorks Tools

The Tools tab on the top RefWorks tool bar provides access to these functions. 

Find duplicates -  search for duplicate references throughout your entire RefWorks database; choose to search for either "exact match" or "close match." Since Cook Children's does not have access to Legacy RefWorks, you probably will not need this option. You can start from within a folder to find duplicate references just within that folder - or click on the "more options" symbol at the end of the folder title in the left-hand tool bar to search for duplicates within that folder.

Install Save to RefWorks - installing this feature in the Favorites Bar of your browser will allow you to add references and full text to your RefWorks database from PDFs and other material from websites you visit.

Download and Install Write-N-Cite - this feature is an add-in to WORD on your computer. See the "Resources" tab in this guide for help locating the correct file version of Write-N-Cite to add to your computer.  Write-N-Cite allows you to place references in your manuscripts, and then automatically format those references in the right format (e.g., APA, AMA, or a specific journal citation format) and create a bibliography or reference list for your manuscript in the same format.  Do install Write-N-Cite on your Cook Children's computer, 
1. Log in to RefWorks
2. From the top navigation bar, Click on Tools (gear) and choose Tools.
3. Under Write-N-Cite, click on "Other Windows and Mac Versions"
    If you are on Windows10, select Download & Install for Write -N-Cite for WORD, 64-bit version
 4. After the installation file downloads, click on the file to begin the installation of Write-N-Cite. Follow the install prompts to completion.
5. Open WORD and you will now see RefWorks along the top of the window, with the Write-N-Cite features.    

Bulk Edit - this provides the ability to add, delete, or replace a text string within a specific field for every reference in which that string appears,
