Once you have set-up RCM you can add
citations at an appropriate point in your
document. Hover over the reference that you
want and click on ‘Cite This’. A citation will be
generated and dropped In to your work. A
bibliography (reference list) is also
automatically created….see next slide.
You can either display all
of your references or
choose a specific folder.
If your citation requires page numbers (e.g.
because you have used a quotation)….
….you will need to edit the citation. Place the cursor where
the citation is needed in your document and select the
relevant reference from your list of references in RCM – you
will then be able to see what the citation currently looks like.
You can then make the necessary changes by clicking on
Add the page number(s) to ‘Suffix’ box….
….then click on ‘Insert
citation’ and the new
citation will be added into
your document (including
page numbers). A fully
formatted reference will
also be generated.
If you want the citation to just show the
year and page number, untick ‘Include
author’ e.g. Smith (2021, p.32)
