2. Click the 'Cite' icon at the top of the window

3. Click the 'RefWorks' icon

4. This will open a new tab, if it gives you the option of which version of RefWorks to export to select 'Yes, export to the newest version of RefWorks'

5. Decide if you want to put your reference in a specific folder

6. Click 'Import'

7. Check the details of your reference by clicking it in RefWorks and checking over the details. If edits/corrections are needed click the pencil icon in the top-right corner to make these.
