Your upgraded document may show the bibliography migrated from the legacy system. If you are using RCM and the bibliography does not update when you add new citations to your document:

Upgrading short documents created with WNC and legacy RefWorks works fairly well. However, if you are working on a long document containing many citations (e.g. your dissertation or thesis) it may be best to complete it with legacy RefWorks if there is time prior to 'legacy' being retired on 30th June 2023. Ask the Library for guidance.
If you upgrade a document created using Write-N-Cite (WNC) and legacy RefWorks, you can continue to work on it using WNC and new RefWorks.
You can't use an upgraded WNC document with the new 'RefWorks Citation Manager' (RCM) tool. You may use RCM with new documents if you wish. See further information about RCM.
Write-N-Cite (WNC) users may choose to login to new RefWorks and WNC using 'My Institution' login. You must create an account and login to new RefWorks using your University account before trying to upgrade a WNC document. See New RefWorks Login for more information.
