May 20, 2010 (Morrisville, North Carolina, and Bethesda, MD) – Dialog, a leader in online information services for professional searchers, and RefWorks, the renowned web-based research management, writing and collaboration tool, are enabling their shared customers to export Dialog and DataStar search results into RefWorks. This direct export ability is supported through multiple interface options plus Alerts, boosting researchers' ability to manage, store and share results, as well as generate citations and bibliographies. RefWorks and Dialog are both members of the ProQuest family of brands.
"We're leveraging the resources of ProQuest to help in our ongoing commitment to make Dialog content easier to work with and also make it more powerful," said Suzanne BeDell, Dialog General Manager. "We're confident that this new relationship with RefWorks will significantly increase the productivity of our users' research."
Founded in 2001 by a team of experts in the field of bibliographic database management, RefWorks is renowned for its high quality within the academic, government and corporate research communities. Customers subscribing to both research tools will find search results are quickly and easily exported from Dialog to RefWorks to create personal databases. The databases can then be used to manage, store, and share the information. Users who are creating reports can automatically insert references from their database, generating formatted bibliographies and manuscripts in seconds.
"This is another milestone in RefWorks' continuing mission to support researchers," said Colleen Stempien, Executive Director of Operations, RefWorks-COS. "Combining Dialog's precision search and expansive content along with RefWorks' authoritative post-search tools provides the kind of one-two punch that accelerates serious research."
