What is a citation manager?

A citation manager is where you can create, add, and store citations, kind of like iTunes for your references! 

What can I do with most citation manager?

  • Create and format bibliographies and in-text citations using many different citation formats (including APA)
  • Share folders of references with others
  • Check for and remove duplicate citations
  • Add notes (ie. annotations) and tags
  • Save and then re-use research

What can't I do with any citation manager?

  • Correct already existing mistakes in a citation - YOU STILL HAVE TO PROOF YOUR CITATIONS!
  • Can not import citations from a text file, Word File, or sheet of paper automatically - you will have to hand enter them in or go to the database export the citation
