What is Citation Management?

Managing research citations is an essential part of the research process. Citation management tools can help you to:

  • organize your research all in one place
  • avoid plagiarism by tracking your research path
  • create in text citations with the click of a button(s)
  • easily format and re-format bibliographies and in-text references: a great tool for quickly changing formats for submission different journals.
