Citation Management


If you are doing lots of research, you may want to choose a citation management program that will store the references you find. Each of these citation managment programs can be used to save, sort, and format citations. Each one has a bit of a learning curve, but in the long run using one of them can save you time. Essentially, they let you create a personalized database of sources that are ready to use in future projects. All of them will format bibliographies in a number of styles, but you always have to proof the results carefully.
