About Citation Management Tools

What is Citation Management Tools?

Citation and research management tools help you organize your research and keep track of your references. They also make it easy to add citations into the documents you're working on and automatically generate bibliographies in pretty much any style, (Harvard University, 2019).

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 to different journals, (University of British Columbia, 2019).
