Guides to SPH Library Resources: Refworks for Word 2016 on Windows or Mac

Using Word 16 with RefWorks

There are 2 RefWorks add-ins that can be incorporated into Microsoft Word: Write N Cite and Refworks Citation Manager. Users with Windows operating systems can install either add-in with Microsoft Word 2016. However, Mac users with Word 2016 will have to install RefWorks Citation Manager. Write N Cite will not install on a Mac that is running Microsoft Word 2016.  RefWorks has since released a compatible version of their Word add-in, but it can only be installed via the Microsoft Add-In Store.
