Exporting from ProQuest includes a few steps:

  1. Make sure that RefWorks is open in another tab or window.
  2. Conduct a search for articles.
  3. Click in the box to the left of any results you want to save.
  4. Click on the My Research folder, above the Result List on the left side of the screen, or click on the Export link immediately above the results list.
  5. Click on the Download in a Format Compatible with ProCite, EndNote, Reference Manager and RefWorks.
  6. Select Save As from your browser and select Text as the Save As file type. Save this file to your computer in a place where you can easily retrieve it (i.e., desktop).
  7. Go into RefWorks, go to the Reference pull down menu and select Import.
  8. Now you will need to fill out a short form.  For Input Filter/Data Source, select: Proquest from the database pull down menu. For Database, select All Databases.
  9. Next, Browse for the file you just saved from ProQuest.  (This is just like attaching a document to email).
  10. If you use folders, you can specify which folder to place the citations in, then click import.
  11. At this point you should receive confirmation that your citations have been successfully imported, click on View Last Imported Folder to view them.
