  • PubMed does not have an option for direct export
  • Select the citations you want then click Send To and add them to the clipboard.
  • From the clipboard, you can click Send To again and choose citation manager.  
  • PubMed will only export 200 citations at a time, but it does allow you to select which citation to start with. For instance you can start at 201 if you have already exported the 1st 200 citations.
  • When you go to import your citation file into RefWorks, you have to select NLM PubMed as the import filter
