If you are using Microsoft Word, or other word processing software, to write your documents, RefWorks offers a choice of add-ins that you can use to link Word to your RefWorks account. These add-ins allow you to:
RefWorks Citation Manager (RCM) is the add-in we recommend you use, but for some of you the older add-in Write-N-Cite might be best. Please see below for a breakdown of each option and for more information on which one is best suited to you.
If you have started your assignment in Write-N-Cite, you need to continue to use it. Make the switch to RCM when you start a new project.
You can upgrade documents created with Legacy RefWorks to work with (new) RefWorks. Always make sure to save a copy of your work before you upgrade a document. When you open a document created with Legacy RefWorks and you sign in to Write-N-Cite or RefWorks Citation Manager, you will be asked whether you want to upgrade the document to use (new) RefWorks. You can find detailed instructions here.
If you aren't sure which version to use, please contact us: email@example.com
