Transcript

  • 1. RefWorks Working Offline Working offline pertains only to document writing and not to adding or editing references in your RefWorks database. There are two ways to work offline. One is the traditional method which can be used by all RefWorks users. The other method requires you to use Write-N-Cite for Windows.
  • 2. RefWorks Working Offline - Traditional method First we need to print out a list of the references to use when we write our paper. We can do this from the export section in the ‘ Tools ’ area (and also from the ‘ References ’ area).
  • 3. RefWorks Working Offline - Traditional method You can export All References, references you have placed in My List, or specify a folder of references. The export section is where you can save your references to your computer as a .txt file in a variety of formats.
  • 4. The format that is recommended for use when writing a paper offline is the Citation List. This format is recommended as it provides you with a Ref ID (which is absolutely essential when working offline), the Author names, the Title and the Pub Year in a compact format. RefWorks Working Offline - Traditional method
  • 5. RefWorks Working Offline - Traditional method If you want a more detailed copy of your references (one that includes every field), use the RefWorks tagged format option. Be warned that navigating this format when writing your paper will be cumbersome (it will be a lot of printed pages) when compared with the Citation List.
  • 6. RefWorks Working Offline - Traditional method In this example we are going to choose the references from a specific folder. From the drop down choose the folder and then click ‘ Export to Text File ’.
  • 7. RefWorks Working Offline - Traditional method The next screen will look like this. Click ‘ Download it ’ or if this does not work click ‘ E-mail it’ . Go to your e-mail and open the attached file.
  • 8. Here’s the file – remember it’s a compact version for you to print out and take with you – not necessarily designed for beautiful viewing. The most essential bit of information from this citation list is the Ref ID which is what you use to tell RefWorks which reference to use when formatting the paper. Save this document to your computer as a .txt file . If you want to print this out, it is recommended that you save it first and then print from the saved file. Once you have saved the file you no longer need to be online and logged in to RefWorks. Ref ID RefWorks Working Offline - Traditional method
  • 9. This saved citation list can now be used to gather the information you need to insert the temporary citation placeholders in your document. A temporary citation placeholder is what RefWorks uses to format your paper properly when you create a bibliography or a reference list……. RefWorks Working Offline - Traditional method
  • 10. We are now working in a Microsoft Word document. This is how you insert temporary citation placeholders into your document. Two opening curly brackets {{, the Ref ID (taken from the saved list), then the two closing curly brackets }}. Save the document when you have finished writing it. RefWorks Working Offline - Traditional method
  • 11. Once the paper is finished and ready for formatting, we need to get back online and logged into RefWorks. Click ‘ Bibliography’. RefWorks Working Offline - Traditional method
  • 12. In the Bibliography area, select the output style and then ‘Browse’ to find the paper to format. Find the saved file, click open, the file will be inserted into RefWorks. Click ‘Create Bibliography’. 1 2 3 4 RefWorks Working Offline - Traditional method

This is a Microsoft Word document We are ready to insert our first temporary citation placeholder in the Microsoft Word document..... Click Write-N-Cite to find the reference you wish to cite. (In other words you are toggling between Microsoft Word and Write-N-Cite).

  • 22. RefWorks Working Offline - Write-N-Cite Method Remember we’re just inserting temporary citations - they will be formatted properly when you have completed your paper and selected the output style for your bibliography. Write-N-Cite has inserted your temporary citation into your paper. This is a Microsoft Word document

  • 31. RefWorks Working Offline - Write-N-Cite Method RefWorks “remembers” how you last used Write-N-Cite, so if you close out of it and re-open it later, Write-N-Cite will open in offline mode. Simply uncheck the ‘Work Offline’ option to be connected online.
  • 32. RefWorks Working Offline - Write-N-Cite Method There are a few features in the Write-N-Cite Tools area that you should know about. ‘ Convert to WNC III document’ . Convert to Write-N-Cite III document allows you to take a draft document created with Write-N-Cite v.2 and convert it so you can continue writing it using this version of Write-N-Cite. ‘ Display unformatted citations’ takes your formatted paper and ‘unformats’ it. It removes the bibliography and turns the formatted in-text citations back into temporary citation placeholders. ‘ Revert to WNC v.2’ converts a Write-N-Cite III document to an unformatted version 2 document. This allows you to share it with Mac users or users who still use Write-N-Cite v.2. ‘ Remove field codes’ takes out all the Write-N-Cite III coding from your formatted paper (which you cannot see but is in your Word document.) This option converts your paper to plain or static text. Once you remove the field codes you can no longer format your paper.
