RefWorks at UM

The Online Research Management Tool

Write-N-Cite is an add-on program which will insert references in the text of a Word document and create a bibliography at the end of the document.

Download Write-N-Cite to your computer by clicking Tools in your RefWorks account.  You will see instructions and options for PC and Mac.

After installing, open Word and look for the RefWorks tab at the end of your ribbon. Use Insert Citation and Bibliography Options to insert sources and a bibliography.

Write-N-Cite will generate errors that require you to make corrections manually. It is not a substitute for learning how to cite sources or using a style manual. Some common errors include all caps on names, lack of capitalization of proper nouns, incorrect author listings for first citations in APA style, and attachment of long URLs. You can correct them as you use Write-n-Cite, or you can correct them in your list of references in RefWorks.
