RefWorks Citation Manager is the new in-text citation tool that you can use if you have Microsoft 2016 for either Mac or PC, Microsoft 2019, or Word Online. With the PC, please keep in mind that you can have both Write N Cite and RefWorks Citation Manager downloaded at the same time. If you have any older documents that you may have already begun in Write N Cite, continue to use Write N Cite. If you have new documents, please try using RefWorks Citation Manager. Do not try to use both on the same document as they do not communicate.
In order to begin the process of downloading RefWorks Citation Manager, please go to the More icon across the top and select Tools from the dropdown menu.
Scroll Down to Cite in Microsoft Word and on the right select View Instructions to Download to download from the Word Store.
Then, follow the directions provided to download it onto your Microsoft Word 2016, 2019, or Word Online.
Once you have added RefWorks Citation Manager, go to View and select Add-In. From the Add-In dropdown menu select My Add-Ins to find Refworks Citation Manager. Select RefWorks Citation Manager to finish the process and sign-in to your RefWorks account.
In order to add in-text citations, please open either a paper in progress or a new document.
Then, place your cursor where you would like to place an in-text citation. Then, go to the RefWorks Citation Manager. Next, select the folder you will need. Note that the Default folder is "All References". From the list of citations, scroll to find the needed citation.
Select Cite This in order to add it as an in-text citation. You can do this for as many citations as needed.
If you would prefer a different citation format, go to the More icon next to by date added and select Change citation Style. From there, go through the process of selecting the needed style. For the image above, APA was selected. The following image is of the Journal of Cell Biology citation format. Notice the change in the in-text style:
With RefWorks Citation Manager, you have the option to allow your bibliography to be inserted as you add in-text citations. The default is "off". If, you toggle "on" you will notice that as you insert in-text citations, the bibliography is automatically created for you:
As you change the Style format of your in-text citations, your bibliography will also update automatically:
If you decide to remove or edit an in-text citation you will want to make sure that those changes are reflected in your Bibliography as well.
For example, the image below shows the removal of the third citation but the Bibliography has not been updated.
In order to ensure that the Bibliography has been updated, please go to the More icon located next to the Sort By options. From the drop down option select Update document. Once you select Update document, your Bibliography will be automatically updated.
