Write-N-Cite 4 now on Student PCs

Finally the new version of Write-N-Cite (WNC4) is now available on all student PCs in the University. The Write-N-Cite Mini Guide  provides all the basics to get started (including  instructions for downloading WNC4 to your laptop).  Find more information in the RefWorks Help pages.


If  you have been using the old WNC3, your citations will be automatically updated to WNC4 format when you start using it.


Why use WNC 4?

Write-N-Cite is an add-in programme for Word which synchronises with your RefWorks database so that you can create in-text citations and automatically produce your bibliography. WNC4 has a number of advantages over earlier versions including:

  • WNC appears in a RefWorks tab in Word (floating ribbon on Macs)
  • Citations are automatically formatted in your text as you enter them e.g. (Smith 2010). The old WNC3 gave you a place holder e.g. {{Smith}} which had to be updated when you created your bibliography.
  • You can create your bibliography at any time and it will be continuously updated as you add more citations.
  • It is really easy to use footnote styles e.g. Chicago and OSCOLA with WNC4


Staff can download WNC4 to their University PC from Run Advertised Programmes.
