One in-text citation tool used for Microsoft suites is the WriteNCite tool. This tool is available for 2016 Office suites and below for both PCs and Macs. This tool looks slightly different from RefWorks Citation Manager, the tool for 2016 Microsoft Suites or higher, and the Google Add-on.
In order to download WriteNCite, go to the More option and select Tools. Then, within the Cite in Microsoft word section, select WriteNCite. Follow the directions provided by RefWorks to go through the download process and install it on Word.
Next, either open a new document or a working document and sign into WriteNCite.
This is what the WriteNCite toolbar looks like in a new Word document:
In order to insert an in-text citation, start by placing your cursor next to the sentence you wish to cite. Then, go to the toolbar and select the drop down arrow next to the first search box in order to choose a citation. Select the down arrows next to the folder you need in order to pick the needed citation. Once you choose the citation you will see it pop up in the Preview Citation section. Then, select Save to add the citation into your paper.
In this example, the style chosen is AMA format which makes in-text citations as supernumeraries rather than text.
If you wish to change the format of the in-text citation, select the down arrow next to the format search bar. You will be able to either choose a recent style or choose from a longer list of citation styles.
The following image shows the Journal of Cell Biology format, which does not create footnotes, but in-text citations.
After you have included some in-text citations for your new or in-progress research, most likely you will want to create a bibliography as well.
First, select where you would like the bibliography to go on the paper. Then, from the toolbar, select the leftmost blue book icon, next to the format style you have chosen. It should say "insert bibliography". All of the in-text citations used will populate within the Bibliography where you selected on your paper.
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 third citation has been removed from the in-text citation and the Bibliography hasn't updated.
In order to update the Bibliography, go to the leftmost Blue book icon. It should state "Remove Bibliography".
You should see that your Bibliography has been removed. Select the icon again to "Add Bibliography". This will upload your Bibliography wth only those used citations.
