RefWorks Write'N'Cite 4

The new RefWorks Write'N'Cite 4 (WNC4) toolbar for Word is now available on staff machines, and will be available in student computer labs during September.

How to install WNC4

On staff machines go to Start - All Programs - Program Installer - Select RefWorks Write-N-Cite-4 and click Install.

Once installed open Word and click on the RefWorks tab. Click login and enter the University of Leicester Group Code and your RefWorks username/password. If you do not know the group code then contact the library.

If you are editing a document that has citations which were inserted using the previous version of Write'N'Cite (WNC3/III) then in the RefWorks tab click Preferences - Convert previous version of WnC - Convert.

Please see the video below for an introduction to using the new Write'N'Cite toolbar:

We will be updating the library webpages with instructions for the new toolbar during September.

If you are using RefWorks on-campus and at home we recommend you use the same toolbar in both places. To update the Write-N-Cite toolbar at home: Login to your RefWorks account, go to Tools - Write-N-Cite and download the appropriate v4 for your computer.

If you need any help with WNC4 then please contact (for Law, Arts & Social Science) or (for Science, Technology & Medicine).
