Write-N-Cite 4 for RefWorks
Write-N-Cite 4 is the latest version of this utility which runs within Word and allows you to insert citations into your document from your RefWorks database, generate a bibliography and format using a referencing style. The previous version, Write n Cite III, is not compatible with Word 2013. (Note that Write-N-Cite 4 is compatible with Word 2007, Word 2010 and Word 2013.)
Logging in to Write-N-Cite 4
You now need to copy & paste Write-N-Cite 4 Login code from RefWorks to Login Code field as follows:
Once you are logged in – the ProQuest menu name changes to RefWorks, and in the ‘ribbon’ at the top of the screen, you will see the message ‘syncing data’. Write-N-Cite is downloading your RefWorks database of references to your Desktop. The features are inactive until the syncing has finished. This syncing shouldn’t take more than a minute or two.
