You can create folders to organise your references.
When creating folders think about the name you give it - is it a meaningful name?
You may want to organise your folders by theme or by categories.
You may want a folder for each chapter you are writing with subfolders to help you organise your references even further.
Whichever way you choose to create folders and subfolders consider the quantity of references you import into each folder. Too large a number can become overwhelming - this is where the use of subfolders becomes really useful.
To create a subfolder click on the three dots next to your folder and choose Add subfolder.
You can create multiple Projects within RefWorks to help manage your references.
When you first begin using RefWorks all of your references will be available in a default 'Untitled project' view. You can leave this as it is and keep all of your references in one place, using Folders to manage references for different assignments, papers etc. However, if you have a large amount of references e.g. for a systematic review, you may prefer to use the Project option to manage them.
Creating a new Project
If you wish to split your references between different Projects you will need to set up a new Project.
NB. Using Projects is different from using Folders. When using Folders you can add a reference to multiple folders and can always click on All Documents to see all of the references in your account. With Projects your references in each Project are separate from each other and cannot be moved between different Projects.
Swapping between Projects
To swap between Projects click on the arrow next to the title of your Project and choose another Project
When you open RefWorks Citation Manager in Word it will ask you to choose the Project you want to use. You can only add references from one Project per document so make sure all the references you want to use are in the same Project.
