Reference Management Software

Reference Management Software Overview

What is Reference Management Software?

Reference management software allows researchers to link to and correctly cite referenced works in their papers. Also known as citation management tools, the software can create proper citations in a desired style (e.g. MLA, APA, etc.). Additionally, reference management software may automate building bibliographies, or footnotes, or reference sections in research papers. Reference management software may organize personal research libraries, or manage access to an outside reference source (e.g. web magazines, literature databases).

Features of Reference Management Software

Reference management software provides the following features:

  • Support for a wide range of citation styles (e.g. APA, MLA, etc.)
  • Automated creation of bibliographical entries, or whole bibliography
  • In-line citation creation
  • Add annotations, notes, to documents
  • Document or reference import from outside sources
  • Extraction of citation data (e.g. author, publication name, etc) from imported documents
  • Synchronize data across shared or stored documents
  • Create a research profile, add publications to a scientific database via the software
  • Style & accidental plagiarism check
