JSTOR Support
RefWorks and citation-ing well
August 26, 2016
Are you a RefWorks user? Are you wondering how to make JSTOR work for you?
If you're cool with logging into/creating a MyJSTOR account you can save citations and export them to RefWorks via My Lists (you can find out how to do this on our handy My Lists instruction page). 
Without logging into a MyJSTOR account, you can export articles to RefWorks on an article by article basis. You can also upload a bunch of search results at once. 
Firstly, you'll need to find the JSTOR articles you want to save in RefWorks. For the bulk search results option, select the articles you're interested in from your list of search results and click the "Export Selected Citations" button in the upper right hand side of your screen. The first option will be "Export to RefWorks." Click it, log in to your RefWorks account and all those citations will come out in a pretty little list. 
Once you're on the individual article level, pick "Cite This Item" in the upper right hand corner of the screen, just underneath "Download PDF."
You'll get a pop-up box. At the top, you'll see three different ways to copy and paste citations. For RefWorks, you'll want to go the "Export Citations" section half-way down. You'll see "Export to RefWorks" first.
Click the link, log in to RefWorks and add your citation to your account. It's as easy as showing your undying love with stuffed animals and cotton candy.
