How do I add a citation style to the Old SmartCite?

Please note that this article is in reference to the old version of SmartCite; this version is no longer being developed. Please check out SmartCite 2.0!

ReadCube currently has thousands of citation styles available for formatting your bibliography that automatically download when you upgrade to the latest version of our client.  These styles are all in CSL format and are fairly simple to create yourself.  If we do not have a specific style that you need, you can easily download it for later use within the ReadCube client or find that style online.  Here are several websites where you can download CSL files for free:

Once you have the CSL file, you just need to move it into ReadCube directly by clicking and dragging it under the "SmartCite" tab of your preferences menu.

Alternatively, you can use the SmartCite tab of the preferences menu to download the additional styles we have compiled from several databases online (see the "Available for Download" menu).  Just search for your style of choice, select it, and press the "Add Style" button to immediately add your style!  Please note that these styles don't sync across Cloud Sync at this time so if you are using ReadCube across multiple computers - you will need to add the style to your other desktop in the same way outlined above.
