To create a paper with in-text citations or footnotes while you write, you have to install an extra tool. Which one of the available tools you use depends on the program you use to write.
Microsoft Word 2016 or higher: RefWorks Citation Manager
When you use Microsoft Word 2016, including the cloud version Word 365, use the add-in RCM (RefWorks Citation Manager). RCM is available through the Microsoft Store. More information on how to install and use this add-in can be found in the RefWorks User Guide > RefWorks Add-ons from ExLibris. Please note: RCM is preinstalled in Word in EUR Office accounts and on EUR PCs.
Microsoft Word 2010 and 2013: Write-N-Cite
In Microsoft Word 2010 and 2013, use the add-in Write-N-Cite. You can download the add-in from your ProQuest RefWorks account under Tools > Tools > Use RefWorks add-ons for your papers > Other Word Versions: Write-n-Cite. Mac-users can check this box for more information. EUR-employees can download Write-N-Cite from the Software Centre
Microsoft Word or other word processors: Quick Cite
A third option to add in-text citations and references in a Word document is Quick Cite. You can find this option under Create Bibliography in your RefWorks account. You will get a dialog box where you can select the reference(s) you want to use, copy the information and paste that in your Word document. At the end you can create a bibliography based on the selected references. Read the module 'Using Quick Cite' or watch this video to see how.
When you use Google Docs to write and you use ProQuest RefWorks, you can use the RefWorks add-on for Google Docs. More information on how to install and use this add-on can be found in the RefWorks User Guide > RefWorks for Google Docs.
The video Writing with RefWorks (6:28) gives an overview of the different tools RefWorks offers.
After installing Write-N-Cite you get a new tab in Word, called RefWorks.
Write-N-Cite works as follows:
Adding the bibliography
After entering the citations, the reference list isn't added automatically: you have to add the reference list yourself.
When you add a new reference to your text, the reference list is refreshed and the new title is added.
Please note: the automatic updating of the bibliography can slow down your Word! That’s why it’s recommended do remove the bibliography while you are writing. You can insert it any time you need it.
Referring to a particular page
If you want to refer to a particular page, and you use the APA style, you have to use the field to add the page:
Enter for example ‘, p. 25’. Click in the Prefix box to reload the Preview Citation, then the page number is added in the Preview Citation. When the information is correct, click OK.
With the Quick Cite option you can copy references in a selected output style in RefWorks and paste them in your Word document. For numbered styles, like Vancouver, Quick Cite is not an efficient option.
