  3. Modify the RIS file import from Scopus to recognize origin

    When the automatic importing from Scopus was working, there was an icon indicating it was from Scopus. This does not happen with the importing from Scopus as an RIS. Can that Icon be added?

  4. Keep search terms while searching PubMed from within New RefWorks

    In the Advanced search form, if a user types in a term then decides to change the search field, the text they type is erased. This leads to user frustration. I reported it to the Support Portal and go the reply that is by design not a bug. This would be a suggested improvement, if you would like to make suggestions for improving the product please add them to our forum at https://ideas.exlibrisgroup.com/forums/909445-refworks . The suggestions made here are used by the management and development team to chart future product development.
    So here it is and thank you for considering…

  5. Allow searching by PMID in PubMed

    It would be helpful to be able to search by PMID when searching PubMed through RefWorks (i.e. through the "search databases" button on the left side of the screen). Sometimes we are searching for specific articles and have the PMID so that would save us time.

  6. "Remove Field Codes" in WnC is an invaluable function for faculty and grad students. Please add to RCM.

    Publishers do not want RefWorks field codes in submitted manuscripts. WnC provides this valuable function, but faculty and graduate students, who because of their platform must use RCM, do not have this feature. I submit that RCM must have this capability for this population of users.

  7. Easily Recognizable APA 7 Standard Format

    When selecting APA 6 for the RefWorks bibliography, you see a standard option and other variations.
    • APA 6th - American Psychological Association, 6th Edition
    • APA 6th - Annotated with Abstracts - American Psychological Association, 6th Edition
    • APA 6th - Annotated with Abstracts - No Title Casing Applied - American Psychological Association, 6th Edition
    • APA 6th - No Title Casing Applied - American Psychological Association, 6th Edition
    • APA 6th - No Title Casing Applied, New DOI - American Psychological Association, 6th Edition

    According to section 9.34 of…

  11. [New RefWorks] 나만의 출력스타일(Citation style) 공유하기 기능 추가해주세요 - Request for my custom citation styles share feature

    Legacy 기존버전에서는 출력스타일/인용스타일을 백업 기능을 이용해서 다른 이용자와 공유할 수 있었습니다. 그런데 New RefWorks에서는 그 기능이 없어 불편합니다. 이용자끼리 '나만의 출력스타일'을 공유할 수 있도록 기능 추가해주세요.

    The users can share the custom citation style by using back-up and restore function in Legacy, but New RefWorks is not. It was very useful feature. I want to share my custom style with my colleague not publish to the institutional style in public.

  13. link resolver visible in publicly shared folders

    I would like to have our LinkResolver links visible in publicly shared folders as an alternative to attachments. That way we can prevent giving illegal access to subscription based articles outside our institution.

  14. Añadir una campo personalizado. Add a custom field

    Quisiera que el campo personalizado se vea igual que todos los demás campos, en todas las referencias: que esté a la vista cuando editas, sin tener que ir referencia por referencia, clicar “añadir más campos", buscarlo y rellenarlo. ¿Es posible hacer eso?

  15. Espacio muy estrecho al visualizar = Very narrow space when displaying

    Cuando se visualiza una referencia, el espacio que se abre a la derecha, en vertical, es demasiado estrecho. ¿Se puede ampliar al doble, por lo menos?

    When a reference is displayed, the space that opens to the right, vertically, is too narrow. Can it be expanded to at least double?

  16. Multiple Citations on Google Docs

    On Google Docs, refworks will generate the same list of references multiple times while multiple people work on it. Is it possible to have just a single list on google docs?

  17. Platform modification

    Thank you for this opportunity. I want to suggest that the platform be modified so that one can read an article while using the web version.

  18. exported list of references

    On the old RefWorks, I could enter RefIDs manually on any word processor whatsoever. There's a description of how to do so, here: http://www.refworks.com/refworks2/Working_Offline.htm#Workingoffline

    We should still be able to do this. It's particularly important, since I don't want to be online in order to write. In fact, there are a lot of people who use Freedom or analogous software to cut off the internet when they have writing to do.

  19. An localized icon image for OpenURLs (like Legacy RefWorks has)

    Currently each citation in legacy RefWorks can be configured to include the institution's unique image in place of the OpenURL link. Not sure why this is not an option in New RefWorks

  20. folder lock

    Have an option to lock certain folders which prohibits articles being deleted from them. Would help from accidentally losing files.
