  2. Click on the "Write-n-Cite" button that appears in the Microsoft Word toolbar (*Note* - you must have first installed the Write-n-Cite utility program available through RefWorks)
  3. Login to your RefWorks account
  4. Click the "Cite" link next to the citation you want to include

To Format the Paper/Create a Bibliography:

  2. Click the bibliography button (within the Write-n-Cite window)
  3. Select the output style you'd like to use
  4. Click the "Create Bibliography" button
