  1. RefWorks creates reference review for doctoral papers so it is already formatted, so all I have to do is input the information

    ReWorks creates the outline for a reference review. So I do not have to recreate the columns and titles for each category. So all I have to do is enter the information. RefWorks also puts in information in alphabetical or chronological order.

  2. チャット+カレンダー(Googleカレンダーなど外部のアプリとの連携でもOK)で共同研究管理やタスクフォース進捗管理ができることが望ましい。きるようにしてほしい。

    PDFファイルを格納するのは、ToDOリスト作り、共同研究や遠隔地の研究者と共著を進めるなど、これからの研究スタイルでは不可欠のものになる。飛行機代を研究資材に充てることで研究効率を高めていく、そのためには文献管理=タスク・スケジュール管理であるべきだ。
    カレンダーとチャット機能、ガントチャートなどのタスクフォースツールを共有できるには、シンプルなものが必要だ。各国で既存流通されているシステム(GoogleカレンダーやBACK LOGなど)を取り込めるような仕組みを活用できることで後続の研究者育成と直結できるだけでなく、次のユーザー囲い込みも可能になる

  3. Link button in table view

    Right now to view a source you have to click on the source, go to the sidebar that pops up, scroll down, and copy the URL text into the browser address bar. Putting a link to the source right in the table view for all your sources seems incredibly simple.

  4. Manual Referencing - Editing/Deleting Fields

    It would be useful if fields could be deleted as well as added when editing or compiling a manual reference e.g. Bills – we do not need the Sponsors field as it will add Anon which is not required.

  5. Citation Style Editor: customize fields more

    In an output-style the field Publish year (date) is listed twice in one reference type. Behind the Short title and behind Place of Publication. The first time it is mentioned, it should end with a parenthesis. The second time not. But it is not possible to define different settings. I think it should be possible to differ. My suggestion is: It should be possible to choose a field, make a copy and give it a new name, for example "Publication date with parenthesis". Then I can edit the field independent from the other field "Publication date".

  6. Platform modification

    Thank you for this opportunity. I want to suggest that the platform be modified so that one can read an article while using the web version.

  7. Specify when multiple shared first-authors or selectively modifying a given citation

    Nowaday, there are more and more issues with sharing of first-authorship. In our field, it is recommended to cite all first-authors.

    Here are two articles:
    1. Dohner K., Ramos-Nascimento A., Bialy D., Anderson F., Hickford-Martinez A., Rother F., Koithan T., Rudolph K., Buch A., Prank U., et al. Importin alpha1 is required for nuclear import of herpes simplex virus proteins and capsid assembly in fibroblasts and neurons. PLoS Pathog. 2018;14:e1006823. doi: 10.1371/journal.ppat.1006823
    2. Schilling M, Bulli L, Weigang S, Graf L, Naumann S, Patzina C, Wagner V, Bauersfeld L, Goujon C, Hengel H, Halenius A, Ruzsics Z, Schaller T, Kochs…

  8. Highlighting OCR'ed pdfs

    Pdfs that are imported from subscription databases are able to be highlighted and notes created. However, pdfs from other sources, like scanned pdfs, smartphone created pdfs, and pdfs from the web, are not able to be highlighted and notes added. It would be nice if pdfs from any source, imported into RefWorks, can be highlighted and notes created in the document.

  9. Create a format to correctly cite APA 7th edition for white papers and published standards

    There is not a category to correctly import references for white papers or standards published by professional organizations. When attempting to adapt other reference types for this use, none work correctly. RefWorks should be able to manage these types of documents correctly.

    This request comes from case #00901397 sent to RefWorks Technical Services

  10. For institutions with multiple users create a syncing system

    Allow institutions to create accounts on behalf of users via Google.
    Instead of having users create an account, admins simply provide users with the login and password for their account.
    Support integration into the Clever application.

  11. Please make RefWorks for Google Docs compatible with Open Athens (single sign on)

    Please make RefWorks for Google Docs compatible with Single Sign such as OpenAthens. Our students don't want to use it since it requires an additional password.

  12. link resolver visible in publicly shared folders

    I would like to have our LinkResolver links visible in publicly shared folders as an alternative to attachments. That way we can prevent giving illegal access to subscription based articles outside our institution.

  13. citas hipertextuales

    Al crear citas hipertextuales debería realizar una diferenciación entre cita textual y parafraseada, aunque imagino que debe ser complicado sobretodo puesto que se diferencian en que las textuales incluyen página, talvez una forma de solucionar eso podría ser que la cita textual debe haber sido resaltada en el texto completo del documento.

  14. Provide the ability to add different reference types to an existing style

    There are new forms of information all the time and students are referencing increasingly varied things in their assignment. It would be useful if we could add new reference types to our institutional referencing style to cover these things.

  15. APA Output Style

    Create an option to truncate or untruncate the output in APA. There are times when a truncated citation in APA format is fine. Other times, I need to have a list of each and every author.

  16. try to generate a performance: function FIND ( phrases, words, collors, field codes...)

    The idea is to find all you need by using an pertinent function FIND which works with all formats.

  17. create an output style with sub-citations (see style Angewandte Chemie International)

    We need that Refworks support the sub-citation feature for the in-text citation and the reference list. There are many styles with this feature, Angewandte Chemie International... And a lot of science journals require this formatting.

  20. Remove shared folder access codes

    We've noticed that when a user shares a folder, the link that the recipient receives generates a screen that asks for an access code if they are not already logged into RefWorks.

    We can see that there is a login link in the top banner but most of our users will miss this.

    Is it possible to have the usual login options (e-mail address and institutional login) in the main screen?

    We've also noticed that, once you do login, it takes a little while for the shared folder to appear in the menu section on the left and once it…
