Due to budget pressure, declining use, and increasing subscription cost, the UW Libraries has decided to cancel the subscription to RefWorks effective June 30, 2021. Some considerations that went into this decision include:
The UW Libraries is committed to supporting though this change and providing documentation and assistance with migrating from RefWorks to another citation management too. Please use this PDF migration guide to get started, or scroll down this page to see one example of the information in the migration guide:
Log in to your RefWorks account and select the references you want to migrate to Zotero.
Choose the Share option and then select Export references. To maintain the file structure of your folders, you will need to export references one folder at a time into your new citation manager.
Select the RIS Format option and select Export.
Save the RIS file to your computer.
Log into your Zotero desktop application. On the toolbar, go to File > Import.
Choose to import from A file.
Follow the prompts, accepting default settings.
Zotero will import the RIS files into a new folder.
