CWYW is a tool that inserts your references into a Word document as in-text citations and automatically creates a reference list in your chosen referencing style.
Once you have created a reference library in EndNote you can link up your library to a Word document and insert citations directly into the text of your document.
This process is called Cite While You Write. This page should give you all the guidance you need on linking your EndNote Library to Word and adding references.
In order to use EndNote Online with Word (or Pages on a Mac) you will need to download the Cite While You Write Plug-In.
If you are using EndNote on campus the CWYW plug-in is already installed. The CWYW plug-in is also automatically installed when downloading the desktop version of EndNote. If you are using EndNote Online at home you will need to download the plug-in from the Downloads tab in in your EndNote library. The Cite While You Write function works slightly differently on a Mac with Word or with Apple Pages. Select the appropriate link below to the instructions for installing the CWYW plug-in for either Windows or Mac.
The CWYW plug-in installs an EndNote toolbar in Microsoft Word which allows you to insert and edit citations.
