RefWorks: New Developments

RefWorks has just released three new features:

1. Write-N-Cite III for Windows with Offline Capabilities
RefWorks is pleased to inform you that Write-N-Cite III for Windows is now available for downloading. This optional plug-in provides you with single document formatting (and unformatting) as well as the ability to write and format a paper completely offline! Simply
* download your RefWorks database from within Write-N-Cite while online, then
* feel free to disconnect from the internet
Full Write-N-Cite functionality is available – inserting temporary citation placeholders, viewing reference information, using the citation editor – even formatting your paper in the output style you choose. All without accessing the internet.

(Current WNC for Windows users can use WNC III on old documents, however, the documents must be converted to a WNC III format which can be done within WNC III.)
