Bibtex4Word is a useful Word add-in that allows you to use your existing BibTeX database and favorite bibliography styles in Word.
To use Bibtex4Word (which only works on a PC) you will need to install the following:
- JabRef (well, actually any reference manager that will allow you to keep track of your BibTex database, but a number of people in the lab prefer JabRef)
- Bibtex4Word macro
There are excellent installation instructions and test documents available at the Bibtex4Word site: http://www.ee.ic.ac.uk/hp/staff/dmb/perl/index.html

An error occurred:
