Research Management Tools
Keeping your documents organized is difficult, and so is managing your citations.
EasyBib is a great simple way to create and organize your citations. Later in your academic career you may need a more sophisticated tool for keeping your documents organized and managing your citations. Here are 3 great tools for manage your documents and citations that we want you to know about:
Zotero, which is simple, works on Firefox, and is free!
RefWorks: simple, expensive ($100 per year!)
EndNotes: more complicated, and more expensive ($250 per year!)
