A new version of RefWorks is now available.

CONTENTS --Writing with RefWorks


Writing with RefWorks (3 Options: Write-N-Cite, RefWorks Citation Manager & Google Docs add-on)

Refworks provides three writing utilities with which you can create in-text citations and bibliographies: Write-N-Cite (WnC), RefWorks Citation Manager (RCM) and the Google Docs add-on.   Links to video tutorials for the all 3 utilities are provided below.  RefWorks also provides a mechanism for creating a stand-alone bibliography which may be used simply as a stand-alone product or added to the end of a paper or manuscript. 

Selecting the RefWorks writing utility (IMPORTANT)

Your choice of  which RefWorks writing utility you use depends on your operating system (Windows or Mac) and the version of word processor (MS Word or Google Doc) you use.  Use the "RefWorks Writing Plugins" link below to help you make this decision.

Creating a Stand-alone Bibliography

You can easily create a bibliography from the All Documents area, any collection or your search results list.

Navigate to the collection you want to use (or All Documents area or run a search and select items) and click the Create bibliography icon

You can choose to create a bibliography for selected references or for all of the reference in the collection (or in All Documents if that's the view you are in).

Next, search for your output style and select it.  Your formatted bibliography will be displayed in your browser for you to copy and paste into any word processing software.

To use a custom output style from your RefWorks account, click here.
