Reference management

Do you want to move references between computers?

References in Word are stored on your computer's hard disk. If you want to work on them on another computer, follow these steps to find the file:

  • type% APPDATA% to the Start menu search box
  • click the folder Roaming Microsoft > Bibliography
  • the references are saved in the XML file Sources

References in Word

Microsoft Word has a simple built-in reference function in the References tab. Here you can manually enter references and refer to them in the text and create a bibliography in the most common styles (APA, Harvard, MLA, etc). This built-in function is good if you have a limited number of references and you do not need to have access your references on different computers.
