ProQuest RefWorks has Add-ins for Microsoft Word and other word processors that allow you to put fully formatted citations from your ProQuest RefWorks account into a document. The Add-ins can then generate and update a reference list or bibliography to match your citations. Using an Add-in can help you spend less time on referencing and more time writing.
Which Add-ins you can use depends on your computer equipment and software.
There are two add-ins available for Microsoft Word: RefWorks Citation Manager (RCM) and Write N Cite (WnC). Both offer the same functions.
In some versions of Word it is possible to install both RCM and WnC. Though they offer the same features they work differently so you must stick with one Add-In for each document.
WnC is installed on University network Windows devices but before deciding to use it remember that you may not be able to access it on your own device.
For most students and staff RefWorks Citation Manager will be the first choice. This is because it is the newest Add-in and therefore will work with the latest and future versions of Word.
If you are already using Write N Cite you should continue to use it on documents you have already used Write N Cite with, but can start using RefWorks Citation Manager for new documents.

Google Docs does not have all the features available in Word but in many cases these can be added through further Add-ons. For example if you you need to add captions to tables or images in your document, there is a choice of Add-ons to enable you to do this.
