  2. Set candidate duplicates as "no duplicates"

    While deduplicating records that have been suggested as duplicates and that I have recognised as not being real duplicates accumulate at the beginning of each new page. They can become a hindrance, so it would be useful that there is a way to tell RefWorks that those records ARE NOT duplicates, so it would stop displaying them in deduplication pages.

  3. Looked by Author/Periodical

    Please re-implement "Looked by Author/Periodical" features that were implemented in the legacy Refworks.

    These functions were very useful for keeping track of the total number of articles by author and by publication in the database, and for browsing through the lists.

  4. Optionally avoid deduplication when a criterion is void

    While deduplicating it can happen that RefWorks suggests large numbers of candidate duplicates because one of the chosen criteria is void, e.g. I choose "title/ISSN/page number" and RefWorks suggests a large number of totally unrelated records just because they all lack the page number - this is taken by the algorithm as "match succeeded". Since this behavior could be sometimes useful, there should be an option "also match void criteria" to choose when it is deemed useful by the user.

  5. 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.

  6. Be able to merge duplicate references

    I think it would be very useful that when Refworks detects duplicates, these references can be merged. In addition to could choose what information save from each of them. Sometimes the firsth reference has the DOI but not the pdf, second reference has the pdf but does not have author information correctly entered, etc.

  7. Set default number of records to view

    At the moment the default number of results to view is 25. There is no option to change this as a default; you have to change it every time you search. I would like to see it made possible to have different numbers of results as a default.

  8. Search Option in RefWorks

    We checked with the RefWorks Support Centre regarding the basic search option settings. The search always prioritizes the joint word over the two separate keywords. To search for the two separate keywords from the title, we need to use the "Advanced Search" option as it provides better refinement of results. Searching for two separate words may not locate such record. However, from the users' perspective, we will simply select some major keywords instead of typing the joint words together every time. Additionally, we will not interpret "Advanced Search" as a search for separate words. Therefore, we believe that there is…

  9. Search Option in Reference Citation Manager

    I would like to bring to your attention about a critical issue regarding the search function in Reference Citation Manager (RCM). We have encountered a problem that it is unable to retrieve relevant article records when searching for separate keywords of a title in RCM.

    It was also discovered that RCM does not provide an “Advanced” search function, compared with RefWorks interface. Considering our testing and comparison with the RefWorks interface, it is apparent that RCM lacks the necessary functionality to support advanced searching. Users are unable to retrieve relevant records unless they specifically type joint words, which is impractical…
