RefWorks will be unavailable Saturday and Sunday, Sept 4-5 for up to 4 hours from 11pm until 3am for scheduled maintenance.
If you are performing a literature search during this time and wish to save your results for importation into RefWorks at a later time, please see the RefWorks Tips, Tricks, and Guides page for EBSCO and PubMed instructions.
We apologize for this inconvenience.
When importing records from PubMed, it may appear that not all records have been imported. In fact, the missing records are usually found merged together in one of the records that has been imported. The problem has been reported to RefWorks and quick action was requested.
Update 3/23: RefWorks appears to be functioning properly.
Intermittent and random access and functionality issues are being reported by RefWorks users. The problem should be fixed by 2pm. If you experience problems after 2pm, please report the specifics to firstname.lastname@example.org or 559-6221.
A temporary solution may be to clear your Internet browser’s cache. Otherwise, if you are experiencing problems and need to save your search results, you can create save your results or search strategy into a personal account within the database:
- MyEBSCOhost – create and sign-in to your account, then add your results into a folder
- MyNCBI in PubMed – create and sign-in to your account, then send your results to a collection.
Currently, direct exports from EBSCOhost MEDLINE to RefWorks are not working and groups of CINAHL records selected for direct export to RefWorks are not being exported in their entirety. Several academic institutions have reported the problems to EBSCO tech support and they have placed this issue as a high priority. We suggest that while these problems are being fixed, you search only one EBSCOhost database at a time and export results to RefWorks using the method described as Work-Around 3 on the RefWorks tips site. Please remember, before starting a second search in a different EBSCOhost database, export to RefWorks, and then delete any records that are still in your EBSCOhost folder from your first search.
Alternatively, you can search MEDLINE in the PubMed interface. Instructions for export from PubMed to RefWorks is also included in the RefWorks tip site.
