You can download Write-N-Cite from the Refworks website. Ensure that all Microsoft Office programs are closed before installing.

Once you have logged in to your Refworks account, select Tools from the main menu and choose Write-N-Cite.

 

 

Under Downloads in in the Write-N-Cite pop up window, choose the relevant Write-N-Cite link (32 or 64 bit word).

 

 

If you are unsure which Write-N-Cite download link to select, open up a new Word document and click on File and choose Help from the left hand side. The version details will appear under About Microsoft Word. Ensure that you close the Word document before selecting the relevant link to download.

 

 

Once you select the relevant download link, you will be prompted to save the file to your computer. Open the saved file and follow the prompts to install.

Open Word and choose the Proquest ribbon, then select the Log In button in the Settings group. Enter your Refworks login when prompted.

 

 

The Proquest tab will change to Refworks and you should have access to all the functions within the Citation and Bibliography, Extras and Settings groups.

 

 

If the Proquest ribbon does not appear, there may be an add-in installed in your Word program that conflicts with Write-N-Cite. Add-ins known to conflict with Write-N-Cite are Dragon Naturally Speaking and Adobe Acrobat PDF Maker. If these add-ins are active in your Word program, you could try disabling these temporarily to see if this resolves the problem.

Instructions to turn off add-ins can be viewed through the following webpage:
