Some things to think about when you are about to choose one of the many citation management softwares available online.

  • Use software which your friends and colleagues are using, it will make it easier to share and collaborate with them.
  • Use what you like and are most comfortable with, there is no one perfect software/program.
  • You can use more than one software, a good tool will allow transfer of data stored from one software to another.
