What should I consider before sending my RefWorks library into EndNote?

(1) Folder Structure

When converting from RefWorks to EndNote, your existing RefWorks folder structure will not be replicated in EndNote. If you would like to preserve your folder structure, prepare your EndNote account prior to converting, by setting up appropriate groups. Then export your RefWorks references folder by folder and assign them to the relevant EndNote groups.

(2) Attachments

Attachments (such as article PDFs) will not automatically migrate from RefWorks to EndNote. If you would like to transfer attachments, you will need to download them from RefWorks and then import (or drag and drop) them into EndNote.

(3) Converting Word documents

If you are using Legacy RefWorks and you have added citations to a document using the RefWorks Write-N-Cite tool, you can convert the document to use with EndNote. You need to reformat the document with a special RefWorks custom output style, before it can be converted. You can obtain the required style and further guidance here: Converting from RefWorks to EndNote

Please note: This option is not available for documents where citations have been added using the RefWorks Citation Manager tool.
