Write-N-Cite Installation & Configuration for JeffersoniansWrite-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.
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.
Write-N-Cite needs to be installed on your computer before you can use it:

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