Welcome to SmartCite 2.0!
Please note that this is still in development so we are working on fixing issues and adding additional features before the full public launch. Your feedback will help us improve SmartCite. Importantly however, please take the usual precautions when using a beta software product - backup your documents regularly, and note that we recommend against using this for critical manuscripts at the moment.
The new version of SmartCite is a plug-in available for Microsoft Word 2016. Unlike the first version of SmartCite, this updated version does not require a local installation of the ReadCube desktop app - this SmartCite add-in integrates with your synced ReadCube Pro library in the cloud.
Also, the old workflows for starting SmartCite (ie. CTRL + CTRL) will no longer be needed.
You will not be able to edit files with citations created in the current SmartCite.
To get started, please follow the steps below:
- You must be using Word 2016 on PC or Mac (on Mac, v15.3+ required)
- Please check and update your Word software to the most current version
- Ensure you are connected to the internet (*offline support coming soon!)
Installing SmartCite 2.0:
Open the Word desktop app, with any document or a new blank one.
Click on the “Insert” tab in the top ribbon, then click on “My Add-ins”.
Click on “Store” in the add-in popup, and search for “SmartCite”.
