Mac and Word 2016

If you are using a Macintosh computer and Word 2016, you will not be able to use the Write-n-Cite program. While RefWorks is currently working on a "fix" for these incompatibility issues, Mac users will have to use One Line/One Cite in the interim. Instructions on using One Line/One Cite are found below.

Please contact us if you need more information. We will keep this section updated on when to expect a fix.

*For Write-n-Cite to run, Mac 10.9 or 10.10 users need to install Java 6 from Apple's support site directly, by visiting http://support.apple.com/kb/dl1572
