Political Science Research Guide: Citing & Managing Sources

Other citation managers

Two other excellent options for citation managers are EndNote and Zotero.

EndNote is a commercial product, which, like RefWorks, is free to you as a Rutgers researcher. Besides a web-based version, there is also a desk-top and an iPad version.

Zotero is a free, open-source citation manager developed at the Center for History and New Media at George mason University.

For more on EndNote, Zotero, and RefWorks, including  visit the Citation Management Tools page.

RefWorks 3

RefWorks  is a web-based "citation manager" that enables you to:

  • Organize your research
  • Import references from many electronic databases
  • Include citations while you write your paper
  • Build a bibliography according to different stylesheets (APA, MLA, etc.)
  • Create a bibliography in different document formats (Word, RTF, HTML, etc.)
