Write-N-Cite is a utility from RefWorks that can help you format citations and bibliographies in research papers.

You can install Write-N-Cite on Windows or Mac OS.

When you run Write-N-Cite for the first time, you may see a warning from your firewall software that advises you to block the program. Do not take that advice -- make sure you allow the program to access the Internet!
