RefWorks in Overleaf

Postby TheresaB » Sun Jul 28, 2019 1:40 am

Hi there,
I am looking for help. I am trying to import my Refworks library into overleaf, but somehow I am not able to cite in my text. I am not sure if I did a mistake in the link or I need to cite different. It would be great to get some help. Here is how I did it:
* I exported my files in RefWorks as a .bib file (ExportFromRefWorks - picture)
* Uploaded the file into my google drive and shared the link (GetLinkInGoogleDrive - picture)
* Went to Overleaf, added a new File with URL - URL from the link and as file name Library.bib (AddURLFile - picture)
* When compiling I do get error messages, but I am not able to change anything in the imported URL file (Error - picture)
* When I cite one of my papers, it does not find anything. I don't really know what I am doing wrong.

I am using before the document:

I would be so grateful for help
Thank you, Theresa

perhaps it helps if you change
Code: [Select all] [Expand/Collapse] [Download] ({untitled.tex})
  1. \bibliography{Library.bib}

Code: [Select all] [Expand/Collapse] [Download] ({untitled.tex})
  1. \bibliography{Library}

Anyway, your Library.bib.bib seems to be in html format (and not in .bib format)
Since I'm not at the university of Auckland, I didn't attempt to open the file...curiously, there it's called `Library.bib' and not `Library.bib.bib', as the BibTeX messages suggest
