Writing Your Paper Overview

Creating and Formatting the Paper and Bibliography

There are four ways to use RefWorks to write your paper and format your bibliography. You can:

When formatting a paper, users should always verify that the output from RefWorks matches the latest requirements of the style.  This may be done by checking instructions to authors, library web sites, style manuals, etc.  

Users should also check for missing data in the output.  If, for example, the year is missing from a reference, check your database to be sure the year is in the data.  If not, add it to the data and reformat the paper.

There may also be situations where manual editing may be necessary.  Please check your formatted paper carefully before final submission.
