Refworks citation manager

The RefWorks Citation Manager (RCM) is a new Microsoft Word add-in for accessing, inserting and formatting citations, footnotes and bibliographies in your Word document, in your chosen output style. Make sure that you can use add-ins in Word.

RCM runs on Office 2016 and later versions. On Windows you have the option of running either Write-N-Cite 4.3 or RCM on Office 2016. For MacOS (and iOS) you must install and run RCM.

Any citations and/or bibliography that have been inserted by Write-N-Cite are not compatible with the RefWorks Citation Manager. Adversely so, any citations and/or bibliography that have been inserted by the RefWorks Citation Manager are not compatible with Write-N-Cite. Citations will need to be re-inserted and the document updated with Write-N-Cite or the RefWorks Citation Manager.

Adding citation manager in word

RefWorks Citation Manager is available through Microsoft Store in Word and can be installed from there.
