Using RefWorks Using Write-N-Cite with MS Word 2007 or 2010 Eastern Washington University Libraries Updated August 30, 2012
To access Write-N-Cite in MS Word 2007 or 2010, click on the RefWorks tab Remember, Write-N-Cite is a Word plug-in that accesses your references in RefWorks to help you create citations and a list of references in a Word document.
Easiest: Login using the EWU Group Code, your Refworks username, and your Refworks password Need the Group Code? Call the EWU Reference Desk at 509-359-2263 Click the Login button Hardest: This option requires you to log into RefWorks and get a new Login Code each time you use MS Word
Be patient! It may take a minute or two to download your RefWorks citations (If the opens are grayed out after your database downloads, close and then re- open Word)
If you open MS Word and already logged in, click on “Sync My Database” to make sure all your references will be available
Choose what style you want to use for your paper Click on the down arrow to display more styles if you do not want to use the displayed style
If the style you want is not included in the list, you will need to add in using the Output Style Manager in RefWorks
When you are ready to cite a reference, click on “Insert Citation” (The first citation will go here)
Please remember Write-N-Cite does 95% of the work for you. You still need to do the last 5% by reviewing the citations to make sure the capitalization, punctuation, page numbers, and other details are correct.
Suggestion: Create a backup copy of your paper using a different file name. A backup copy is a good idea in case something goes wrong with your working file.
