Yes, you can. RefGrab-It is a browser plug-in and bookmarklet that searches a web page for PubMed IDs, DOIs, or ISBNs. With this information, RefGrabIt can usually get a full citation and import it into your RefWorks account.  If a full citation is not available, you will need to provide additional bibliographic data to create a more complete entry.

The RefGrab-It plug-in works in Internet Explorer 6, 7 and 8 and Firefox up to version 13.  You can install RefGrab-It in your browser by accessing it in RefWorks, under Tools.

There is also a RefGrab-It Bookmarlet for Internet Explorer that also works with IE 9 if you use Compatibility Mode
