Reference Managers allow you to collect, store and manage your references. Three of the most common are EndNote, Zotero and Mendeley. This guide provides a comparison table to help you choose or change Reference Managers, as well as further instructions to help get you started.
The following may also help you to decide which Reference Manager suits your needs. If you are already using a Reference Manager and would like to change, please see the tab Changing Reference Managers for more details.
The purpose of the module is to assist researchers in their decision making of which reference manager to use to organise their references in their work. The module explores the features of three popular reference managers – Endnote, Zotero and Mendeley – and helps in the decision of which one is best for research practices.
