Use Citations / Write-N-Cite

Building Your Bibliography

There are four ways to use RefWorks to write your paper and format your bibliography. You can:

  1. Use Write-N-Cite to format your paper from within MS Word
  2. Use One Line/Cite View as an alternative to Write-N-Cite; it works with all word processors on any operating system
  3. Create a simple reference list (without in-text citations or footnotes)
  4. Create a formatted paper and bibliography using RefWorks


Using Write-N-Cite (also known as Proquest for Word)

Download Write-N-Cite from the Tools menu in RefWorks. You'll also need to ensure that your computer has the latest versions of Microsoft Word, Java, and Visual Studios Tools for Windows. Please note that Write-n-Cite is not currently compatible with Word 2016 for Mac. Mac users with Word 2016 should consult this guide for workarounds.

Another alternative for Mac users of Word 2016 is to download RefWorks Citation Manager from the Office Store, as described in this guide from Gonzaga University.

This tutorial shows how to use Write-N-Cite to create citations and bibliographies.

Modify a Citation Style

RefWorks allows you to choose from many traditional output styles such as APA, Chicago, Turabian, and MLA, as well as citation styles defined by particular journals. See the RefWorks complete list of Output Styles Supported.

To modify an existing output style, or create a new one, see the Using the Output Style Editor tutorials.
