RefWorks Resource Guide: Write-N-Cite


Write-N-Cite is a utility that formats in-text citations and bibliographies. The Write-N-Cite plug-in inserts tags for your citation into your document as you type. Once you have saved the document, you need only choose your citation style and click Create. The formating is completed quickly. To use Write-N-Cite, you must first download the Write-N-Cite utility from the Tools pull-down menu. This plug-in is compatable with both Windows and Macintosh applications.

Locate Write-N-Cite in the Tools menu.  Instructions for installation are then provided.    Download Write-N-Cite so that you will be able to access it from the toll bar inside your word processing software.

See RefWorks’ Get Started with Write-N-Cite in 4 Easy Steps for detailed instructions in using the new Write-N-Cite.
