In New RefWorks, you cannot create multiple accounts. Instead of different accounts, users can create Projects. Projects allow users to maintain separate reference collections for different research projects.
If you have multiple Legacy RefWorks accounts, you can consolidate them into one account in New RefWorks, with each legacy account becoming a project. You can further consolidate from there. Click here to learn how to move references between different projects.
The consolidation process is fairly easy:
2. Create a new Project. Give it a name, preferably something that relates to content from the Legacy RefWorks account that you'll be bringing over.
3. Click the +Add button (plus sign at the top left) and then select Import References.
4. Select Legacy RefWorks from the available options.
5. Select Authorize.
6. Enter the login information for the specific Legacy account that you wish to bring into New RefWorks.
7. Select Login.
8. RefWorks will import your references, folder structure, and any custom output styles in the Legacy account. Your imported records will appear in the Last Imported folder as well.
9. Repeat this process as needed for all of your legacy accounts.
