Write–N–Cite and Windows Vista

It’s recently come to our attention that the Write-N-Cite software used to format a bibliography does not work with Windows Vista. A Vista compatible version is in development, although there is not yet a release date for this.

In the meantime, users who want to create their bibliographies with RefWorks should do the following.

Inserting references
  1. Log in in to your RefWorks account as normal, using your web browser (Internet Explorer or Firefox).
  2. View your references by clicking View then All References (or you can just select a specific folder to view only those references).
  3. Under the option Switch to:, select One line/Cite view.
  4. To insert a specific reference, find it in the list and click Cite.
  5. A Citation Viewer window appears with your reference enclosed in curly brackets, e.g. {{Jones, 2006}}.
  6. Click Select Citation.
  7. Press Ctrl and C on the keyboard or select Edit from the menu at the top of the screen, followed by Copy.
  8. Click the Clear button.
  9. Start your word processor (e.g. Word) and open the document into which you want to insert the reference.
  10. Place the cursor where you want the reference to be added and press Ctrl and V on the keyboard or select Edit from the menu at the top of the screen, followed by Paste.
  11. Repeat the above steps as necessary to insert further references.
Formatting your bibliography
Once you have inserted your references using the method above, you will need to create your bibliography. To do this:
  1. Within RefWorks, click on Bibliography
  2. Select the output style (e.g. Harvard) required by your department.
  3. Select the option Format paper and bibliography.
  4. Under Document to format, click the Browse button.
  5. Find the document you have created and double click it to select it.
  6. Click on the Create Bibliography button

Write N Cite

A user recently reported that although RefWorks was allowing them to login using their New Athens (AthensDA) details (these are the same as your normal PC login details), Write N Cite was prompting them for their old Athens password. If this happens to you, try the following:
  1. At the screen labelled Athens Authentication Point, click on Alternative login
  2. On the screen Organisations who use Athens access management, click the + next to universities
  3. Click on University of Warwick, then click Go at the next screen (which has a green arrow on it).

You should now get the usual Warwick login page and be able to login using your standard computer username and password.

Installing Write n Cite on a home PC or laptop

If you are trying to install Write n Cite on a home PC or laptop and receive the following message

The file c:\ProgramFiles\Refworks\UNWISE.EXE could not be opened

make sure you have Administrator level permissions to install software on that machine, otherwise the installation will fail.
