References management software

A good references management software is very useful when managing your documents, and offer functions that are impossible to implement with a word processor or spreadsheet.

Main features:

  • Links between references and documents are saved on the computer or online.
  • References from a search engine or database are imported automatically.
  • Bibliographies are generated automatically, in accordance with stylistic standards for citations in word processing software (Word, OpenOffice, etc.).
  • Bibliographic references can be shared between researchers.
