Refworks slowness

RefWorks slowness (24-9-2010, 12:00 UTC)

RefWorks has become menacingly slow over the last few weeks. This has been reported to RefWorks. It is a worldwide problem. The main problem (servers that are for unclear reasons declining requests) has been solved. One should be able to access one's account. However we gather that the site is still unworkably slow and take that very seriously. We have contacted RefWorks again urging them to take immediate action to improve the situation.

Our sincere apologies for the inconvenience and time lost.

Google Scholar: Import to Refworks moved

From LinkedIn this message by our colleague from the Erasmus University Rotterdam
Judith Gulpers: 'Hello, while giving a RefWorks-workshop this afternoon I saw that in Google Scholar the option to select Import to RefWorks has moved. You have to select Scholar Preferences in the right upper corner'.

RefWorks Support: Error message using Create Bibliotgraphy (WNCIII)

Transcript of Q&A with RefWorks support:

One of our customers encountered a problem while attempting to use the 'Create Bibliography' function in RefWorks, using Word2007 (document extension: .docx) and Write-n-Cite III. She received the following error report:

Errors were encountered while processing your document:
- The following error occurred attempting to read your document: 'this.oRange.Text.substr(...).match(...).0' is null or not an object

In investigating this problem, we opened the .docx in Word2003 (Word2007 not being available in the library). Attempting to use 'Create Bibliography (with Write-n-Cite III) resulted in the same error report.

Subsequently, we tried saving the document as a .doc file, saving the document as a .doc file under a different name and copying the content of the original document into a new .doc file. These attempts resulted in the following error message when attempting to use 'Create Bibliography' (Word2003, Write-n-CiteIII):

The following Errors were found while processing your document
- The following error occurred attempting to read your document: 'length' is null or not an object.

Could you advise us on the possible cause of this problem and provide a solution?

That error indicates that part of the document was written with Write N Cite v.2 and part was written with Write N Cite III.
Open your document and log in to Write N Cite. After you have logged in, click on Tools > Revert to WNC V.2 Document and revert the document. Then save the document. After saving, from within Write N Cite, click on Tools > Convert to WNC III Document > Convert. After the document is converted, save the document. Then try creating your bibliography again.

NB. An alternative explanation/solution was found by Googling the error message:

From: James F Brett

I dealt with the same issue yesterday. The problem was (or I think was) that the student had inserted citations into her doc using WnC but had nor used edit citation function to remove an in-text citation. She simply deleted the citations in Word and kept on going with the document. We backed up to her original document that had no inserted citations, then inserted a couple of citations and were able to successfully format her document.

Simple lists of books with tips for studying, teaching and research

Starting this week the library offers simple lists of books with tips for studying, teaching and research through our RefWorks Shared Area.

Viewing the UU RefWorks Shared Area and importing titles from lists available there into your own RefWorks account is possible for anyone. Just go the the UU RefWorks Shared Area or from within RefWorks click View > RefWorks Shared Area. If you want to you can even subscribe to a feed of new additions to these lists, through RSS.

We are interested to get feedback on this initiative. If you would like to cooperate by adding relevant titles, please let us know by commenting on this message or, preferably, by sending a message to
The Shared Area is a RefWorks webpage for all UU. It is available for publishing reading lists simply by ticking the option when sharing a RefWorks folder. However to keep the page manageable this option is only available if you have been granted permission. Anyone willing to use this space for their own lists can send a request to the UU RefWorks administrator via stating the RefWorks username and topic of the list.

RefWorks unavailable this Saturday 1 AM - 7 AM

Due to urgent maintenance work on RefWorks UU databases, RefWorks will be unavailable on Saturday 13th of March from 1:00 AM to 7:00 AM (Central European/Amsterdam time).

Off campus export problem from Sociological Abstracts solved

The problem of not being recognised off campus by RefWorks when exporting from Sociological Abstracts and other CSA databases (LISA, ERIC, MLA) has been solved. After logging in to these databases using the links on the library website you are automatically recognised by RefWorks as UU-authorised user and only need to log in with your RefWorks username and password. No need for using a groupcode.

Scopus direct export problem solved

Direct export from Scopus to RefWorks is working again. There is no need anymore to save/import RIS files with Scopus references.

January 7, 2010

Scopus direct export out of order

Since the recent server changes at RefWorks the direct export from Scopus is not working. Both RefWorks and Scopus are aware of the problem and working to get it solved. In the meantime to import references from Scopus please use the output option to save these in a RIS file. In RefWorks choose import form the references menu and use RIS format as import filter and Scopus as database. We will inform you as soon as the direct export will be working again.
