Citation Management

When you find articles of interest in a database or search engine, bibliographic management programs such as Zotero or EndNote make it easy to create a personal collection of references (citations and/or articles) and cite them in your document in the citation style of your choice.

  • EndNote offers many of the same features as RefWorks, yet must be purchased. It is available from the University Computer Store, TechZone
  • Mendeley is a free application and does not require Internet access. It can query PubMed for more accurate citation information and matching PDFs, yet with mixed success.
  • Zotero is open-source and free, yet requires an additional plug-in to manage PDFs. Internet access not required.
