To insert a citation using Manuscripts’ built-in citation tool:
- Place your cursor where you want your citation to appear.
- Open the citation tool by clicking the Insert Citation button on the toolbar.
This brings up a list of all imported references. If you do not see any references, you need to import or re-import bibliography data from your reference manager.
- If your reference list is long, you can search for the reference you need using the search bar at the top of the pop-up.
- Select a reference and click Cite.
Manuscripts inserts the citation at your cursor location, using the citation style you have specified. If you have not specified a style, Manuscripts uses the default style defined in your template.
If this is the first citation you are inserting into this document, Manuscripts asks you if you would like to insert a bibliography section at the end of your document. If you decline, you can add a bibliography later using the Insert > Bibliography menu option.
Note: In addition to using the Insert Citation button in the toolbar, you can also add a reference using the Insert > Citation option from the main menu.
