Manage Your Research

Get in the habit of using a citation manager to help you organize and store all the sources you use for your research projects. 

Citation managers make it easy to:

  • Gather citations from databases and websites
  • Edit, organize, store, and search citations
  • Output citations in many formats (MLA, APA, Chicago, etc.)

Citation managers integrate with word-processing programs for inputting in-text citations and generating the corresponding bibliographies.

A citation manager is a valuable time-saving tool for researchers and anyone writing a paper with cited references/bibliographies.

Temple supports Refworks, EndNote/EndNote Web, Mendeley, and Zotero. In addition to these, there are many other citation managers available for free or for purchase.
