I am having trouble importing from ERIC.

None of these solve my importing problems.
Usually saving your citations as text files and importing them from within RefWorks will solve most direct import errors. See RefWorks Help - "Getting References Into Your Account" for more information.
My database isn't listed in the RefWorks list.
For a complete list of databases with import filters, visit RefWorks’ list of Database Services Supported. If you do not find a filter for a particular database, you may request that RefWorks create one. While logged into your RefWorks account, click on "Help" - "Request" - "Import Filter" and fill out the form. Keep in mind that it may not always be possible to create a filter for a particular database. This decision is usually that of the database vendor and not RefWorks.
