Click on the View link to see the entire reference and to access the Edit command if you want to make changes.

Editing Citations

Some Output Styles require that a specific page be included in an in-text citation.  Others require that the author name be left out of the citation if the name is included in the text.  RefWorks cannot determine a specific page number for a reference or know when an author name is in the text.  You can, however, manually instruct the program to exclude or include certain items in the citation through the use of in-text switches.  Click here for information on using switches in your in-text citation or footnote.

To create your bibliography and format your paper:

Note:  Your paper must be saved as a .doc, . docx, . odt or . rtf file in order for RefWorks to be able to read and format it.

  1. Click Create Bibliography.  RefWorks creates a new document formatted in the selected style followed by a bibliography  (even if you have used Write-N-Cite III to insert the temporary citation placedholders).

  1. Follow your browser's instructions for viewing the file and be sure to save the document to your hard disk before closing. Your original document remains the same as it was before you formatted it.

All changes to the document should be made to the original document. Only the original document with the citations in curly brackets may be reformatted later.

Email it: After the bibliography is created you may also email the list.  The email address in your RefWorks account is automatically entered, but you can overwrite it with another address.  Only one email address can entered.

  1. To change the document format follow the same steps and choose a different Output Style. Try two different formats - Harvard, which is based upon author last name, and Nature, which is a numbered bibliography (the same as creating endnotes). To create a paper with footnotes try the Chicago Notes format.
