RefWorks: Scopus integration provides a sophisticated level of interoperability between Scopus and RefWorks; enabling researchers an uninterrupted workflow when finding and managing research information. It is a time-saving breakthrough for researchers!
Exporting interesting references from databases, and subsequently managing them, is one of the most common and time consuming tasks for a researcher. RefWorks: Scopus integration provides a fast, easy and accurate way to manage references. The integration of RefWorks: Scopus Edition means that reference data can be managed live and in real-time, working seamlessly between the two systems.
How does it work?
RefWorks:Scopus integration requires users to register once using their personal RefWorks username and password. This will then enable them to export directly to RefWorks without ever having to fill in their username and password again. The RefWorks username and password can be found in the email received at the time of registration for RefWorks. Instructions for registering with RefWorks: Scopus Edition can be found below:
A: Under “My Profile” users can register by clicking on RefWork settings (note: this requires that users are logged in to Scopus).
If tickbox does not appear, please contact the Scopus E-helpdesk for assistance.
B: The RefWorks User Name and Password should be entered here. The RefWorks Group Code field is in most cases filled in. If the Group Code is blank, please contact the library. Note that users are only asked to submit their login details once.
