Reference Managers

Reference managers are literature management tools that allow you to:

  • collect and organize documents in different formats,
  • find papers relevant to what you are studying now,
  • access your papers from anywhere online (also using smartphone),
  • automatically generate bibliographies and insert references,
  • choose a citation style from among the listed options,
  • create bibliographic descriptions manually in case they are missing from the databases and it is impossible to import them,
  • download and collect records from databases and the Internet to be quoted in the article as well as files in a variety of formats (including PDFs) – due to automatic metadata detection,
  • create many thematic folders, subfolders, groups and organize the literature around different themes,
  • collaborate easily with other researchers online.
