EndNote Guide

Subscription to RefWorks expired

The University of Texas at Arlington Libraries' subscription to RefWorks expired on March 1, 2020. At this point, you must contact RefWorks Customer Support to request your data. For information about how to do so, please see the RefWorks Migration Information guide.


  • There are two different versions of RefWorks: the older "legacy" RefWorks and the more recent "new" RefWorks. If you used "legacy" RefWorks, click on the instructions for Importing Legacy RefWorks data to EndNote. If you used "new" RefWorks, click on the instructions for Importing New RefWorks data to EndNote.
  • Please be aware that folders in RefWorks cannot be moved to EndNote, only the references themselves can be. Also, what RefWorks refers to as "folders" are called "groups" in EndNote. If you wish to preserve the folder structure that you have in RefWorks, you will need to create new groups in EndNote that correspond to your RefWorks folders. Then, you will need to migrate citation data one folder at a time into the new groups in EndNote.
  • File attachments cannot be transferred from RefWorks to EndNote. You may, however, save the attachments on your computer and then add them to EndNote manually by either dragging the PDF to the appropriate citation or adding it as an attachment to the citation.
  • The "Personal Notes" and "User" fields also cannot be transferred from RefWorks to EndNote. This information may be copied and pasted into another field manually.
  • The EndNote Cite-While-You-Write plugin cannot be used in a document that contains citations or bibliographies formatted by RefWorks Write-N-Cite.
