RefWorks Citation Manager: Add Citations to Your Paper

Tools to Add Citations to Your Paper

Download the plugin for MS Word 2013 or Google Docs, to "quickly insert and edit citations, adding them to your bibliography as you go."  

From the Tools menu, scroll down until you see the options for downloading and installing Write-N-Cite for MS Word or Google Docs.

This is how the MS Word menu should display with Write-N-Cite.
Tab labeled RefWorks appears with options to Insert Citation, Citation Style, Bibliography Options, Sync My Database, Open Refworks, Logout, and Preferences.

You will periodically need to "Sync My Database" so you have access to new citations that you've added to RefWorks.
