RefWorks Citation Manager is a reference manager for use with Word 2016 on either Windows or Mac OSX (*see below).

It is compatible with either legacy RefWorks 2.0 or with new RefWorks 3.0.

You may install RefWorks Citation Manager (RCM) from Word 2016's Insert tab > Add-ins > Word Store > then search for RefWorks - select the RefWorks Citation Manager add-in and add it by clicking the 'trust it' button. You will then be requested to enter your RefWorks log in details before you can start using it.

Word Store - search for RefWorks then follow the installation instructions

New users may choose to start with the new version of RefWorks 3.0 now and use the RCM add-in.

Mac users who only have Microsoft Word 2016 you should use the new RefWorks Citation Manager Add-In.

* Brunel University London now offers all members a version of Microsoft Office 365 free, under an educational licence, for the duration of your studies (staff members may also take advantage of this offer). You may obtain the package by logging on to the Connect Portal ( and then, under My Apps, sign in to Microsoft Office 365. Please note, Windows users will be able to install Word 2013 (the 32-bit version) on their devices - this is not compatible with RefWorks Citation Manager and you should use Write-N-Cite 4 instead (see link below).
