  1. Continue repeating citation suffix throughout text

    The disambiguation system for multiple references from the same author, same year is to add a suffix (a, b, c, etc). However the suffix only appears the first time the reference is cited. This creates confusion when the references are cited multiple times in the text as it becomes impossible to know which references future citations refer to.

  2. Allow author disambiguation citation style changes

    With multiple references from same author, same year, the citation currently uses full stops when adding the author's initials. I have citation style set up to not use full stops (just initials) but RCM defaults to full stops. Can custom citations styles please be accepted by RCM?

  3. Built in pdf converter

    When a reference isn't in pdf format, I have to convert it to a pdf, then use a third-party program to OCR the content, in order for the document to be able to be read and highlighted in RefWorks. It would be nice if RefWorks had a converter built in that recognizes many files types and converts them automatically to the format it will recognize. Some pdfs that we have OCR'ed are still not recognized by RefWorks. This is frustrating for faculty and students, and the librarians who wish to help them.

  4. Problem: RefWorks in Word (64-bit) does not communicate with my RefWorks folders.

    Hello,

    When I open Word, RefWorks Write-N-Cite-tool reports the following (see screenshot). When I try to add citation in Word, none of my folders is shown. In the RefWorks website, however, everything is normal. What should I do?

    Thank You!
    - Lasse

  5. "Ref Grab It" compatibility with MS Edge.

    Please make the "Ref Grab It" tool compatible with MS Edge. Last I saw it worked with Internet Explorer, but I don't now of anyone who uses that. Our IT dept has mandated that we use Edge. I'd love to use the RGI tool, but I am unable to do so with Edge. Thank you!

  7. Write-N-Cite VS RCM

    Hola!
    En el apartado Herramientas ofrecéis la opción de descargar Write-N-Cite, cuando creemos que ahora recomendáis el uso de RefWorks Citation Manager (RCM). Crea confusión. Si Write-N-Cite no va a tener actualizaciones, ¿por qué en Herramientas no hacéis mención a RCM?
    ¡Cracias!

  8. Could Microsoft be persuaded to rename RefWorks in WNC?

    At the moment in Word WnC appears as RefWorks. This is confusing to users who should be using the infinitely superior RCM. We steer students to RCM, but believe they are using WnC because it is labelled as RefWorks and is the obvious, although wrong choice

  9. Add media Type field to references for BibTex

    LaTex references are allowed to have a media Type field that is not currently an option in Refworks. This field when available and used can specify the media type in a bracket. For example, a personal communication reference with Type field set to Email will have [Email] specified in the bibliographic after compiled. Like so:

    Chapman, S. (2021, Feb 4,). Re: Recreating DFN model in 2018 paper [Email].

    This field should be available when selecting Personal Communication as a reference type.

  11. Add dataset as item type

    As NIH gears up to enforce a new data management and sharing plan and librarians work with researchers to develop plans and create new norms, I think it is important for reference management tools to enable researchers to cite data by creating dataset as an item type.

  12. Add the ability to add page numbers to APA 7 in Google Docs

    The fact that this is still an issue is frustrating. RefWorks, you have been told FOR YEARS that this is an issue, and you still haven't changed it. Faculty REQUIRE students include page numbers regardless of what the style says. I really don't understand why this still hasn't been fixed. There is no manual way to add page numbers in Google Docs.

  15. Font sizing issue even after corrected. New citations resort all intext citations to 11, even the already correct intext ones.

    When putting a new citation in every citation resorts back to font size 11 changing the entire document (thesis chapters).

    Improvement: Once a citation is in a sizes correctly, keep it so. this should not be resized everytime a new citation is added.

    Point: pre-updated refworks didnt have this issue, so this should have a solution.

  16. Problems with the new version of Refworks

    I am writing to you because I have been using Legacy Refworks for more than 12 years for my work as a university professor and researcher in the field of scientific production and bibliometrics.
    It has always been my essential support for managing documents. They have been trying to get us to use the new version of Refworks for several years and have set a deadline for us to use the old version. Years of failed versions that erased all the data I had.
    And now in the new version, since I have to switch to the new version by…

  19. Currently, we do not offer for users to ignore or not ignore casing or other options. - Please can this be an option?

    I know you can just ignore during screening, however it would help massively when looking through thousands of results if there were less due to casing issues :)

  20. Increase number of results we can export at a time from 1000 to at least 1500 or 2000.

    Increase number of results we can export at a time from 1000 to at least 1500 or 2000. When doing systematic reviews for people, there are often large numbers of results and at the moment the absolute limit is 1000 (even though we can view 2000 results). Otherwise we need to send the results in separate files which is extremely time consuming as well as inconvenient both for us and the users.

    RefWorks does not impose export limits. You may export all references in your Project at any time.
    Export times will vary based on number of references selected for export and connection speed.  A library of 150,000 references may take about 30 minutes to export.
