Write-N-Cite - from Word

Write-n-Cite works on older versions of Word that are incompatible with RefWorks Citation Manager.

  • Windows users of Microsoft Office 2016 can choose to use Write-n-Cite or RefWorks Citation Manager.
  • Macintosh users of Microsoft Office 2016 must use RefWorks Citation Manager.
