How to Insert a Citation into Microsoft Word 2010

When writing a paper for class or making a reference to another work, it is important to include a citation. Using the citation feature in Microsoft Word rather than using the manual method is useful as it adds the citation to a list so Microsoft Word can later create a bibliography for the document automatically. This guide will walk-through how to insert a citation into a Microsoft Word document.
  1. Open Microsoft Word 2010 by clicking Start » All Programs » Microsoft Office » Microsoft Word 2010.

    Open Microsoft Word

  2. Select the area you would like to insert the reference.
  3. Click the References tab across the top of the page.

    References menu

  4. Click the Insert Citation button.

    Insert citation

  5. Click Add New Source.

    Add new source

  6. Input the source type and information about the source and click OK.

    Enter source type and information

  7. The source will then appear and will automatically be added to the built in Bibliography which can be accessed via the Bibliography button at the top of the page.
