RefWorks Citation Manager (RCM) is a plugin for Microsoft Word that lets you run a simplified version of RefWorks inside Word. RCM is a newer, more modern version of Write-N-Cite.
RCM is available through the Microsoft Store and can be installed directly from Microsoft Word. By default, Office automatically updates RCM whenever a new version becomes available. RCM requires that Internet Explorer is installed for Microsoft Windows users, and that Safari is installed for macOS users.
To find the right add-on for your operating system and writing tool, see Finding the Right Writing Tool Plug.
Note: If access to the Microsoft Store is blocked, see the article: Enabling RefWorks Citation Manager.

Editing Existing Citations
Edit the information and click Update Citation.
Important: It is recommended to edit citations using the RCM Edit pane. However, edits that cannot be made with this pane can be made directly in the citation content controller. These edits are not synced with RCM and therefore are overridden when the document is updated (for example, when a new citation is added or when the RCM refresh button is selected. It is recommended to make manual edits when document writing is completed.
