No method is perfect. You can either find and import one record at a time or try to find and import a batch of records.
A. First I'll describe the process of finding and importing one record at a time.This method has the best chance of producing only the desired references and the best chance of producing correctly formatted references that will not require editing.
1. Use the RefWorks "Search" menu to select "Online catalog or database".
2. Search for the first article of interest. A search for an article's title combined with one of the authors' last names will usually produce a result if the article of interest is represented in PubMed.
3. Select the needed record and use the "Import to Folder" drop-down or the "Import" button to bring the record into your account.
4. Repeat steps 1-3 for each reference needed.
B. The batch method I'll describe utilizes CrossRef and "RefGrab-It" to find and then import up to 50 or 60 records at a time.
