Word: Citation and Bibliography

Microsoft Word's Citations & Bibliography feature allows you to insert in-text citations. From your in-text citations, you can automatically generate a bibliography in any format. 

In-Text Citation

To add an in-text citation for a new source:

  1. Click the [References] tab > Locate the "Citations & Bibliography" group.
  2. From the "Style" drop-down menu, choose the preferred style.
  3. Click [Insert Citation] > Select "Add New Source...."
  4. Fill in the source information > Click [OK]. The in-text citation will appear and the source will be saved for later use.

To add an in-text citation for a previously used source:

  1. Click the [References] tab > Locate the "Citations & Bibliography" group.
  2. Click [Insert Citation] > Select one of the sources you have previously inserted.

Bibliography

To add the bibliography field in your paper:

  1. Place your cursor where you would like the bibliography to begin.
  2. Click the [References] tab > Locate the "Citations & Bibliography" group.
  3. From the "Bibliography" drop-down menu, choose a format. The resulting bibliography will include all of the sources that you have added already with the in-text citation feature.
