PubMed: Exporting References to RefWorks



Using the RefGrab-It Tool from RefWorks:

RefGrab-It is an optional feature for capturing citations from web pages. It is available in two versions -- a bookmarklet that works with either Internet Explorer or Firefox and downloadable plug-ins for Internet Explorer and Firefox. View the Refworks tutorial to learn how to install this feature.

Once the RefGrab-it tool is installed,  you simply click the bookmark or plug-in and the citation information is captured and you have the option to choose all citations on the page, or just the ones you select.
