Posted On: Sunday, November 21, 2021 - 13:21 by Steph Hendren

Many are familiar with EndNote as a helpful citation management tool that assists with collecting, saving, and citing papers. But sometimes EndNote can feel somewhat cumbersome to use. If you are on the market for a new citation manager, you might want to try out these other options.

Zotero is a freely available tool that offers desktop and Web versions and works well with both Windows and Mac. It is easy to use and makes collaborative projects relatively simple via Google Docs. If you run out of free storage, additional inexpensive storage space is available for purchase.

Zotero (zoh-TAIR-oh) is a free citation management tool that conveniently “lives in” your Web browser, where you do the majority of your work and research.
