Q. How can I export SciFinder search results into RefWorks?

Answer

1. Check the boxes in front of the records you wish to export or the "select all" link.
2. Click the "Export" link.
3. A "Save File As" dialog box will appear.
4. Select "Citation export format (*.ris)" and give the file a name you'll remember.
5.  Click "Export."
  • Most browsers will automatically save the file to your "Downloads" folder and give it a name like -- "Reference _mm_dd_yyyy....ris.
  • If you are asked to name the file that is being saved, be sure to note where you are saving the file and give the file a name you will be able to remember.
6.  Go to RefWorks, hover over the "References" menu and select "Import"
7.  Use the "Import Filter/Data source" drop-down to select the "ACS Publications" filter
8.  Use the "Database" drop-down to select the "RIS Format" database.
9.  Select a folder if desired.
10.  Click the "Import" button.
11.  If the import produces zero records, try importing the file again.  This time use the following drop-down selections:
"Import Filter/Data source" -- RIS Format
"Database"  -- RIS Format
12.  When the "Import completed" box appears with the correct number of imported records, click on the "View last imported" button.
