I would be great, if Refworks detects duplicates while I import references. RefWorks could ask: "This is already in your RefWorks database. Do you want to import it anyway?"111 votes
We are looking into implementing this feature. Once there is a clearer schedule the idea status will be updated to Planned.
Am I the only one who thinks the Write-n-cite "insert citation"-window functionality is horrible?
1) add a possibility re-size the window such that you can see more than just two references.
2) allow proper search function - at minimum a possibility to search by typing two author names but preferably also words from any field in the reference.
Currently I see only two lines
and (maybe I'm doing this wrong but anyway) can only search by single author (surname).95 votes
Download the Full Text, if it is available, automatically, so there's one less step in the research process.73 votes
Please improve Save to RefWorks to import PMID from PubMed.58 votes
I would love to see the automation of capitalizing proper nouns in APA. I believe that the only way to currently achieve this is to edit the citation after export.58 votes
Currently, folder structure is set once created and cannot be modified without recreating and deleting folders. It would be great to be able to click and drag folders so that if we decided to make one folder into a subfolder, or make a subfolder into a main folder, we could click and drag it in/ out without having to create a new folder structure, move/ reassign all the references over, and then delete the previous folder structure.57 votes
We would need a WAYFless URL to RefWorks 3. In our workflows users want to go directly to RefWorks 3 from within other applications. The route to go to the login page is not needed with a WAYFLess URL. Haveing requested this already three years ago nothing seems to have happened. Frustrating.53 votes
Thank you for your feedback, and apologies for the late response.
We will be taking a look at this, however at this time we cannot provide an expected schedule. While the benefit of this feature to the users is clear, we are currently focusing on closing some parity gaps vs. legacy RefWorks and on completing some key roadmap features. I will update here when we will have something more concrete to share.
Please negate the need for Refworks to require a new tab and login when I export new references from my Institution's database.
I would like all my exported references to default to the Refworks database I already have open at the time.
Each time I export a new reference into Refworks, I am asked to login again which results in multiple Refworks tabs open.53 votes
Currently additional tabs are opened to avoid overwriting any activity in an existing tab. We are looking into changing the implementation to avoid multiple tabs without overwriting.
Currently the user interface and login site are hard to handle trough mobile devices.
I suggest a user interface auto adaptable to device screen (responsive)51 votes
Somehow, we have managed to get multiple occurances of the same Style set as Institutional Styles. I am told this is a known issue and that Development are aware but with no date for a resolution. It would be useful if Admins could remove Institutional Styles no matter what account they are from42 votes
This feature is being considered for future development.
We would like to export from New RefWorks with a RefID included. At this moment, the default export options don't include the RefID and it's not possible to add the field RefID to a custom style.
Use case: two researchers have to look at the literature for a systematic review and decide on inclusion or exclusion. They want to have a list in Excel with title and abstract and RefID to make it easier to compare and clean their list afterwards. This is possible in Legacy RefWorks, but not in New/ProQuest RefWorks.40 votes
We would like to make accounts delete/inactive by batch after narrowing by "Last active" on the admin page of New RefWorks. This is available on Legacy RefWroks' admin page.39 votes
Drag and drop a reference to a folder: It would be nice, if I could choose wether I want to copy it to a folder or if I want to move it from one to another folder.35 votes
We are evaluating this feature and will update once we have more information.
Add "one line one cite" feature. Gives people ability to insert in-text citations in programs other than Word or Google Docs.
Our campus is using Microsoft Office 365. The "one line one cite" feature that was available in the Legacy version gives the option of being able to insert citations/create bibliographies in other writing software.32 votes
We are planning a One Line Cite equivalent. Once there will be a committed schedule this idea status will be updated.
One of the most useful tools when reading a document is the ability to search in the text. Please provide us with this essential tool when viewing the uploaded PDF documents.31 votes
We will be updating the RefWorks document reader in the future; we will consider the search option when implementing the new reader.
Although RefWorks supports exporting bibliographies in ODF format, it's missing the integration with LibreOffice. Other reference management tools do provide this, so it would be useful if RefWorks did as well. Thank you!29 votes
The Quick Cite option can be used to copy citations and bibliographies into a document written in LibreOffice.
legacy Refworks has global edit function, so I can edit language field at once. Thus, it is good for if my output style has two definition for different languages. However, New RefWorks has bulk edit function as similar as Global edit, but there is no function for editing languages filed.29 votes
We will gradually be adding additional fields for bulk editing.
We are looking into adding this feature to the roadmap.
It may be useful for users to be able to change the window size of Write-n-Cite III and WNC 4 as they like.27 votes
Please add the function to copy references to other projects not "Using the Export References" or "Using a Shared Folder".
Both of these methods require many steps.
We need more easy way to copy references to other projects.26 votes
