In your RefWorks account, select Tools, Write-N-Cite.
Copy the code in the box on the top right of the download screen,and paste it in the login screen.
Later, contact Ask a Librarian to get the group code.
What Do APA In-text Citations Look Like?
For information about APA rules on in-text citations and references, see the resources on this guide:
Write-N-Cite is the RefWorks tool the inserts in-text citations and creates bibliographies or reference lists. Write-N-Cite needs to be downloaded to whatever computer you are using to write your paper.
From the top menu, select Tools, Write-N-Cite

Download /install the application.
When you next open Microsoft Word, there will be a new tab called RefWorks (Windows) or a new toolbar (Mac).
Write Your Document
Open Word. Select the tab called RefWorks for PC or a new blank toolbar for Mac.
Log In to your RefWorks account from the top menu.
Login with the Group Code, and your user name, and password.
Select your citation style from the Style dropdown menu.
With your cursor at the point where you need to insert an in-text citation, select Insert Citation, then Insert New.
Select your folder. Highlight the author/article. Click OK.
Note: Preview Citation will show exactly what will be inserted.
Create the Reference List
With your cursor at the top of a blank page, select Bibliography Options, then Insert Bibliography from the top menu.
If submitting your paper electronically, remove the RefWorks/Write-N-Cite field codes. Be sure to save a copy of your document with the codes so you will be able to edit the paper later.
