Getting Started |
About Write-N-CiteWith Write-N-Cite, you can cite references in a manuscript with the click of a button. Write-N-Cite is an OPTIONAL plug-in that is downloaded to a user's computer and when run, accesses a LIMITED version of their RefWorks account. Write-N-Cite for Windows installs a button on your desktop as well as an icon on the Word toolbar and a menu option in Word, under Tools. Any of these options will launch Write-N-Cite.
Download InstructionsTo use Write-N-Cite with RefWorks you must download a small utility program to your computer. From the main RefWorks page, click on Tools, and then Write-N-Cite. Follow the download instructions.
After you have installed the Write-N-Cite program, open it from within Word by clicking the toolbar icon or by selecting it from the Tools drop down menu. You can also launch the program from the Write-N-Cite icon on your desktop or by clicking on the Start menu and selecting RefWorks from All Programs. If you launch the program from the desktop icon or the Start menu, it automatically opens a copy of Word for you.

Mac Users: In addition to the standard Macintosh menus, there is a Word menu in Write-N-Cite which lists open Word documents. This is a convenience which allows you to activate Word or select a document to bring forward.
Creating a Bibliography
You do not need to select the file since Write-N-Cite is already linked to the current document. A new Word window will open up, with your document renamed (such as "Final - Test paper"). The in text citations will appear, as well as the reference list/bibliography, according to the style selected. Remember, if you need to make edits to the document, be sure to edit the original document and re-create the formatted document by running the bibliography process again.
