DeepDyve's Reference Manager

Now you can use the references you've collected in DeepDyve to enter citations directly into Word documents as you write.

Add references to Word documents as you write

Gathering references

The Reference Manager pulls from articles you've saved in DeepDyve folders, so if you haven't done that yet, start there. Articles don't need to be part of our LitStream collection to be saved in folders or used in our Reference Manager; metadata from other articles can be saved as well.

Installing the Reference Manager

  1. In Microsoft Word, click "Insert" and "Get Add-ins".

  1. Search for "DeepDyve" and select "Add"

  1. You'll see a DeepDyve logo to the right of your toolbar. You can click this to open up the reference manager.

Inserting in-text citations

  3. Additional citations you add to the document after creating the bibliography will appear automatically

Updating styles

If you want to change the styles used to format your references for a particular document, go to the Settings tab in the Reference Manager and select the new style. The in-text citations and bibliography will update automatically.
