The latest version is Write-N-Cite 4 which acts as an add-in to Word. This can be used on our Windows 10 networked PCs (users of Windows 7 networked PCs may need to contact the department's computing officer to install the add-in). You can download it to your own PC or laptop (there is a version for Apple users), see the box to the right.
We would recommend using Write-N-Cite 4 as it has much better functionality than Write-N-Cite III. You can select Write-N-Cite III to be consistent with the networked PCs, but it will not work if you use Kaspersky for your security.
Write-N-Cite 4 is an add-in in Microsoft Word. The RefWorks tab is added at the right hand end of the tabs.
When you select this tab, log in using your RefWorks Group Code, username and password. Word will then synchronise data with your RefWorks account and you can start using it.
When you have logged in using your RefWorks credential, the icons will colour in.
First select your output style in the drop-down: you will need to choose "select other styles" and then pick the appropriate style, eg "Harvard (Brunel University 2013/14)".
To insert a new citation:
First place your cursor where you wish your bibliography to appear. In the RefWorks tab:
Your bibliography will be created in the correct order.
Once this bibliography has been created, each citation you add to the text will automatically have its reference inserted in the correct place in the bibliography.
If you use the author's name in the text (eg "Ragland says that...") you do not repeat the author's name in the citation. In Write-N-Cite:
To put in the page number for a quote (eg "(Ragland, 2003 p. 43)"), in Write-N-Cite:
This process will both format the citations and generate the bibliography. In RefWorks:
Your in-text citations will be formatted, including any page numbers, and the bibliography will be created in the correct order.
On your own devices:
Write-N-Cite III is already installed on networked PCs. You cannot download Write-N-Cite on these PCs.
Write-N-Cite III works differently from Write-N-Cite 4. It is opened from your "Start" button or desktop and will then open Word. Tthen you can open the Word document you want to edit.
