Ever find the "perfect" article, only to forget where it was or what it was called? Using a reference manager can help prevent that from happening! Reference management software (also called citation management software) helps you collect and keep track of your research in one place. Whether you found a reference you want to use in your own work from a database in the library, PubMed, Google Scholar, website, or elsewhere, reference managers can help you remember and locate again what you've found. This is especially helpful for research projects and papers you may be working on over an extended period of time. Reference managers are also commonly able to output your list of references in the appropriate citation style, enter notes about a reference, and store PDF files you've downloaded in cloud storage for use across multiple devices.
