If you encounter problems with installing Write n Cite (or the alternative Citation Manager add-in), it is recommended that you use the Quick Cite and Create Bibliography functions from within RefWorks itself, and then copy and paste the results into your document
See RefWorks: Quick Cite and Create Bibliography in this guide
To use RefWorks directly within Word documents, you will need to download a plug-in called Write n Cite.
If you are on campus and using a University PC or laptop, then Write n Cite should already be installed and show as a RefWorks tab on Word
MAC users and some others *may* be unable to use this plugin. There is a newer alternative available, RefWorks Citation Manager (RCM): this is an add-in located within the Store in Word (Insert: Store [red folder]).
See the Ex Libris RefWorks guide for information on RCM
The bibliography is added to the document. It updates automatically, so every time you add a citation to the body of your text, the full citation appears in the bibliography, properly ordered:
"The first article discusses timing (Constantine et al., 2008), whereas the second examines 'emerging concepts' (Tita et al., 2009)."
At any time, you can change your citation style using the drop-down menu in "Styles" in the RefWorks tab within Word.
The plugin also has advanced options for things like customizing your bibliography’s formatting or editing your citations. See the Help pages for more information and links.
Note: you can also generate bibliographies from within RefWorks itself, which can then be copied and pasted into a document. See the extended RefWorks Guide and choose the tab "Creating a bibliography".
