What is citation management?


Citing your papers is an important part of the research process. 

  • Why cite?: Learn about plagiarism, and why it's important to cite other people's work.
  • How not to plagiarize: Discover what you need to cite, and how to cite it properly.

However, citing your papers can also become one of the more frustrating and time-consuming parts of the research process. Citation management software can help you save time by allowing you to:

  • Collect citations from online databases and library catalogues
  • Organize, edit, and search through the citations you've saved
  • Insert in-text citations, footnotes, and bibliographies into your Word document
  • Create bibliographies in well-known styles like APA, Vancouver, and even specific journal styles like Nature
  • Share your citations and collaborate with colleagues on projects
