Write-N-Cite Installation & Configuration for Jeffersonians

Write-N-Cite is a utility that links your RefWorks database to MS Word and other document-creation software. With Write-N-Cite, you can cite references in a manuscript with the click of a button.

Compatibility

Write-N-Cite is available for Windows 98 or higher, MS Word 2000 or higher and Internet Explorer 5.0 or higher. Write-N-Cite for Macintosh requires Mac OS X version 10.3 or later and MS Word for Mac 98 or higher.

Popup blockers and personal firewall can interfere with the operation of Write-N-Cite. If you experience problems, try disabling those utilities.

Installation

Write-N-Cite needs to be installed on your computer before you can use it:

  1. Make sure MS Word is not open on your computer.
  2. Log into RefWorks and select Write-N-Cite from the Tools menu in RefWorks
  3. Download the small utility program to the desktop of your computer.
  4. Doubleclick the wncinstall icon to install the program, following its prompts.

Configuration of Write-N-Cite for Off-Site Use

Because Jefferson offers RefWorks off-campus by proxy server, you must enter some information in the WNC Proxy Configuration Utility.

Windows Users:

  • From your Start Menu select Programs and RefWorks.
  • Select the WNC Proxy Configuration Utility.
  • Cut & paste or enter:
    https://login.proxy1.lib.tju.edu/login?url=https://www.refworks.com/Refworks/?WNC=true
  • Click OK.

Mac Users:

  • Activate Write-N-Cite.
  • Select Preferences from the Write-N-Cite menu.
  • Select the Proxy option and cut & paste or enter:
    https://login.proxy1.lib.tju.edu/login?url=https://www.refworks.com/Refworks/?WNC=true
  • Restart Write-N-Cite for this proxy configuration to take effect.

Write-N-Cite Launch

After you have installed the Write-N-Cite program, you may open it:

  • from the Write-N-Cite icon on your desktop;
  • by clicking on the Start menu and selecting RefWorks from All Programs; or
  • for Windows users only, from within MS Word by clicking the toolbar icon or by selecting it from the Tools drop down menu.

If you launch the program from the desktop icon or the Start menu, it automatically opens a copy of MS Word for you.

Group Code

Note that Ovid's direct export to RefWorks requires entry of a GROUP CODE by off-campus users. The code is sent to your Jefferson email account when you first register for a RefWorks account. Use of the code is restricted to Jefferson faculty, students and staff.

If you do not have the original email, please ask a librarian for the code (215-503-8150, askalibrarian@jefferson.edu or IM SMLreference) or you can look up the group code below the login fields.
