  4. 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.

  5. APA capitalization

    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.

  6. the option to copy references to other projects

    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.

  7. Add a ref type for "dissertation"

    There is no reference type in RefWorks for dissertations, only theses. In APA style, citations for dissertations and theses are formatted differently so RefWorks should offer an additional reference type.

  8. Add "search" to the view tool

    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.

  9. A new reference type for standards

    Could you create a new reference type for standards? There isn't a ready-made option for this. It seems that it isn't possible to rename existing reference types.

  11. Export to BibLaTeX format

    RefWorks currently exports to BibTeX, the legacy bibliography system in TeX, but not to BibLaTeX, the modern and powerful bibliographic management in LaTeX&friends. Updating to BibLaTeX data model shouldn't be a big issue for RefWorks as it has the framework for exporting to BibTeX. Other tools like JabRef, Citavi, Zotero... have already native support for BibLaTeX.

  12. Drag and Drop to folders: option to decide whether to copy or move to another folder

    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.

  13. 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.

  15. LibreOffice integration via a plugin (like Write-n-Cite with Word)

    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!

  18. Add Menu for Language Setting on WnC

    We can set the language by ourselves when we login to WnC with Legacy RefWorks account, but we cannot when we login to New version's account. Please add menu to set the language even when we login to WnC with New RefWorks accounts! This request is for users who also uses non-English languages in the world, but I think it is needed.

  19. data-driven article recommendations

    There is a demand for data-driven article recommendation function for RefWorks.
    Some kind of web services have already implemented this kind of function.
    One end-user said that it should be based on not only articles in user account but also references cited in those articles. I hope this idea to be considered.

  20. Improve print/electronic differentiation in imported book references

    The default setting for book imports is for electronic books and it is, in my experience, not apparent to users until an inaccurate bibliography is created.

    Perhaps you could:
    A) Change the default from electronic to print
    B) Bring the 'this is an electronic resource' tick-box to the top of the screen when a user imports a book record.
