  1. RCM Sort options: Ascending/Descending and within search results

    RCM search only sorts in descending order, nice for Dates but less for text fields (Author, Title). Toggle ascending vs. descending of a sort field would be ideal.

    Also, I notice that when searching for a reference in RCM, there is no sort at all. Adding the same (or any) sorting to RCM search results would really help.

  4. Add option to include publication field in a repeated reference when author unkown

    In the Footnotes Settings in the citation style editor, there is an option to "Show only author, title & cited pages" for a repeated reference. This is great!

    However, in Chicago Notes & Bibliography style, when the citation for an unsigned newspaper article is repeated (for example), the shortened citation should also include the publication.

    For example, this reference would be initially cited as such:

    "Number of Out-of-Wedlock Births a Record," Hartford Courant, November 26, 2006.

    But the shortened note should read:

    "Number," Hartford Courant.

    Can you add an option to include the publication field when there is…

  5. Viewing abstracts when "All References" is displayed by Full View

    It is more useful if it is possible to view abstracts when "All References" is displayed by Full View.

  6. Always accurate display of results and associated folders

    Unfortunately, in the advanced search, the result display (in my own citation view) does not show the exact hit for each reference (e.g. 1 of 27) and the folder(s) the reference is in.

    In RefWorks legacy this was the case and extremely helpful to us.
    Will these features still be implemented?

    I think it is a pity that the folder display is now only in normal or full view.

    Advanced search result page shows # of # of results indication on top of the page. Click on "Customize" in upper right corner of page to select whether you would like to show Folder(s).

  7. Displaying folders in own citation style

    In RefWorks legacy, you could immediately see which folders a reference was in. – No matter in which view the references were output on the screen.
    Now this works only in Normal or Full View.

    This display would also be very useful in self-created citation styles, especially if a reference has been saved in multiple folders.

  9. Add "Ref ID" as a field to an output style.

    The authors that I work with like having a bibliographic style that shows the Ref ID in the very first field, before the author last name etc. Thanks in advance!

  12. Remove case sensitive restrictions on account registration

    Clients attempting to create new accounts receive the "We're sorry, but it seems your institution does not have a RefWorks subscription" message when capital letters are used in an email address, but are able to create accounts when typing addresses in lowercase letters. A "case sensitive" message would help to resolve this confusion. Alternatively, and better, would be to simply make this field not case sensitive.

  13. Please add the "Duplicate" [citation] option from Legacy to new.

    Please add the option to duplicate a citation from Legacy to new Refworks. I have used it often, and find it a quick way to add similar citations that are not from a literature database. It's the "Duplicate" button from the "Edit" option that I miss already. Thanks.

  15. Update folder counts upon import

    Currently, after importing references from a file and specifying a folder location, the folder count isn't updated until a browser refresh. This can be troublesome because it then prompts to (re)import the folder.

  16. Ability to copy metadata from the deduplication page

    It is currently impossible to copy any metadata from the deduplication page, yet it can be useful in doubtful cases to copy a DOI to verify it is correct, etc (I have just found a couple of duplicates that had the same reference but different DOIs: one of the two is somehow broken and non-existent. I had to write down on paper the two DOIs and then type them by hand in order to check the situation)

  20. Remove database permalinks from APA 7 formatted citations

    The various APA 7 citation styles reference list citations erroneously include the permalink to database records when exported from such database vendors as ProQuest and EBSCOhost., as shown here:

    Kudlats, J., & Brown, K. M. (2021). Knowing kids makes a huge difference, part II: Advancing a conceptual framework for positive principal-student relationships. Journal of School Leadership, 31(5), 451-477. https://ezproxy.bethel.edu/login?url=https://search.ebscohost.com/login.aspx?direct=true&db=eric&AN=EJ1312200&site=ehost-live&scope=site http://dx.doi.org/10.1177/1052684620935384

    Because so many of our databases come from these vendors, our users are required to extensively edit their reference lists. While we always advise the necessity of proofing and editing RefWorks citations, such a glaring and consistent error discourages our…
