  • You can check the titles that you would like to remove from the list after printing if you’d like.
  • Save the web page as a text file to your RefWorks folder.
  • Replace the .html extension with .txt and be sure to select Text Files in the Save as type field.
  • Records are imported one at a time from Google Scholar and once imported into RefWorks, automatically open in the edit mode. Consistent data such as title, author, year, etc may not exist in your results; the only thing they may display is the URL. If the metadata exists, it will import into RefWorks.
