Readerware -> RefWorks template

< Back to Knowledge Base Home

Last Updated: June 01, 2012


I developed the following report writer template to create reports to allow Readerware databases to be imported into RefWorks , a web-based referencing and bibliography creation tool (similar in function to EndNote).

This produces a report in the format of an ISI (Web of Science) output report, which can be imported into RefWorks using the ISI import template (cut and paste the report into the RefWorks import window).

Requirements

To create the file:
Select File->Report Writer from the Readerware menu
Select RefWorks.html from the Report drop down list
Select File->Run to create the RefWorks data
Select File->Save As to save the data to a file (e.g. readerware_output.txt).

To import the file into RefWorks:
Select References->Import from the web-based RefWorks menu
Select Import Filter: ISI Institute for Scientific Information
Select Database: Web of Science
Select Import Data from the Following Text
Paste the text from the saved file (readerware_output.txt) into the text window
Click on the Import button

Save the following code as RefWorks.html in the template repository.

Code:
