RefWorks offers several export options that you can use with other programs. These options (available in Tools/Export References) are:

  • Bibliographic Software (EndNote, ProCite, Reference Manager). Saves the database in a tagged format that can import into another bibliographic management program. It is the format sometimes called the RIS Format or Reference Manager Format and can be imported into Reference Manager, ProCite, EndNote, or any other program that supports the RIS Format.
  • Citation List. Creates a list to use when writing your paper offline. The format includes the RefID, Authors Primary, Title Primary, and Publication Year only. This format is probably not usable by an other bibliography manager.
  • RefWorks Tagged Format. Saves the database in a format similar to the bibliographic management software format. This is a tagged format. The data layout, however, is patterned after the RefWorks database as opposed to tags that match with other bibliographic programs. Use this format for backup purposes and for sharing data with other RefWorks users.
