Reference management: Saving RefWorks references to your computer

Saving RefWorks references to your computer

It's recommended to export references from RefWorks directly to another reference management system. If you haven't started to use other RM system yet, you can also save your references to your computer as a machine readable RIS file for later use.

If you don't want to have a RIS file, you can create a bibliography in RefWorks and save as a text file to your computer.
