RefWorks: RefGrab-It

Installing RefGrab-It

Download and installation instructions are here.


RefGrab-It works with your browser to capture bibliographic information from web pages giving you the option to import that data into your RefWorks account.

If an ISBN number, PubMed ID or DOI exist on the web page, RefGrab-It will automatically search various web resources to get supplemental information that may be of interest to you.  RefWorks may also locate RSS feeds related to that web page.

Use RefGrab-It with OneSearch,, or any website rich in bibliographic information.  But remember the "garbage in, garbage out" principle: if a piece of information is incorrect or missing, RefWorks cannot correct this for you, only format it as correctly as possible.
