RefWorks has an excellent series of tutorials on its YouTube page.
Start with Learn to use RefWorks in 20 minutes. This is a group of 10 short videos that (you guessed it) only takes twenty minutes to watch. Numbers 8 and 9 are only applicable if you have Microsoft Word 2016 or higher.
Additionally there are other videos going into more depth on topics or covering additional features.
Caution: if you are looking at the related videos list, be sure you select videos about New RefWorks, not Legacy RefWorks.
If submitting your paper electronically, remove the RefWorks/Write-N-Cite field codes. Be sure to save a copy of your document with the codes so you will be able to edit the paper later.
Select: Remove Field Codes from the top menu of the RefWorks tab in Microsoft Word.
APA experts have decided that there are 3 correct ways to format a DOI in a reference:
1. https://doi.org/10.1037/arc0000014 (preferred)
3. doi:10.1037/arc0000014 (as shown in the Manual)
RefWorks has decided to change to the new style. However, it is not doing either option correctly!
Decide which format you will use and use it consistently:
https://doi.org/10.1037/arc0000014 (is preferred by the APA experts)
doi:10.1037/arc0000014 (is used in the APA Manual)
Example: Using option 1; the doi preceded by https://doi.org/
In Edit mode in RefWorks:
1. If the field reads //dx.doi.org change it to //doi.org Note: if you add the full prefix " https://doi.org/" RefWorks will delete the https:
2. If the field only contain the DOI, add //doi.org/ in front. Note: if you add the full prefix " https://doi.org/" RefWorks will delete the https:
You will need to add the https: later
Delete any information in the URL field
When you finish writing and create the bibliography for the final time*: add: https: in front of the double slash
* it must be the final "create bibliography" because every time the bibliography is created, anything added to the document in the gray highlighted areas (i.e., RefWorks codes) will be reset.
