  1. Add WorldCat catalogues to Search Databases in RefWorks New

    Our library uses a WorldCat catalogue. We would like our catalogue to be added to "Search Databases" in RefWorks New to enable searching our institutions catalogue from within RefWorks. This is not possible at the moment because RefWork needs Z39.50 and WorldCat uses SRU. So we would like SRU to be added to RefWorks or the possibility to use the WorldCat Search API.

  3. Search should default to folder you are working in

    If you are currently in a folder, perhaps the search function should default to searching the folder you are in, with an option to search your entire database of references.

  4. Copy and Paste references

    It would be great if Refworks can allow copy and paste of other references to their platform so they can choose the type of style they prefer rather than only export, import and create a new ideology. Paste a reference in a box where it tells you what style it is, and which one do you prefer. Then, make your choice if APA, HAVARD whatsoever.

  6. Allow admins to delete deactivated accounts.

    We can deactivate accounts as admin, but we are unable to delete them. Admins should be able to delete accounts.

    I work in an institution that will reuse email addresses once a student leaves; this creates problems re: deactivated accounts in RefWorks. I would like to be able to delete accounts.

  8. Ignore punctuation in bibliography

    The ordering of titles surrounded by inverted commas is separate to those titles that do not have inverted commas, in a bibliography.
    Is it possible to ignore the inverted commas so that all titles are listed alphabetically, regardless of punctuation?

    I have tried ediing the 'title' field in the Bibliography settings but I don't see any option to ignore punctuation here.

  10. Problem with deleting records

    I'm trying to delete some items from RW but can't do so. The delete option is greyed out.
    In other cases it's not.
    Have not heard back with a solution to this yet.

  15. Chicago 17th Author-Date style

    Please make the style for Chicago 17th correct in all respects. I have found errors in the citation of journal articles and a chapter in an edited collection. There may be other errors. Strangely, the errors occur in newly entered references, not in references imported from legacy refworks. Also, any editing of an imported reference cause the citation to become incorrect.

  17. The ability to move references.

    Be able to move references manually since once you put them in besides the hard sorting of authors and such there is no way to change order.

  18. Bibliography order of citations with same author and year

    When creating a bibliography in Word using Write 'n Cite, RefWorks automatically bases the order of citations on the author, then the title. However, when using two different citations with the same author and year, I want the order of those citations to be the same order I used them in the text.
    Now I have 'author(2021b)' first in my text, then 'author(2021a)' because it's sorted like that in the bibliography.
