This guide relates to Legacy RefWorks and will no longer be updated. We recommend that you upgrade to new RefWorks as soon as possible.
You can edit an existing style to meet your requirements or you can create a new style from scratch using the Output Style Editor.
See the following RefWorks guides:
You can edit your style with the Output Style Editor.
See the RefWorks Guides above (in the 'What if my referencing style is not available?' section).
With RefWorks you can chose from hundreds of referencing styles. RefWorks calls these Output Styles. Students can change the style they use for different module requirements just as easily as academics can switch styles to suit journal publishers.
The most commonly used styles are Harvard Stirling University, APA, MHRA, Chicago, Journal of Ecology and Oscola but students should refer to the Writing References guide to find out which style they should use.
These instructions help you to select your references and style to create a simple bibliography. You can then copy and paste this into your word document.
Make sure that the references you want in your bibliography are displayed in the RefWorks screen e.g. from the right hand side folder list, click the relevant folder (1a) to display its references (1b).
ALWAYS CHECK THE BIBLIOGRAPHY FOR ERRORS AND CHECK YOUR SCHOOL OR MODULE GUIDELINES
If you wish to wish to produce your bibliography dynamically as you create your in-text citations or foot notes you should use the Write-N-Cite add-on for Word
If you cannot see the referencing Output Style that you want when creating your Bibliography, click on Manage Output Styles.
This will open the entire list of styles in RefWorks. Choose a style and click the arrow to add it to your favourites so that it will be visible whenever you create a bibliography.
