Behavioral Neuroscience: Citing your Sources

Guide to resources in behavioral neuroscience at Northeastern University.

Fall 2018 Training

Our Fall citation management workshop season is over, but there will be more workshops in the spring. Check this page for updates. 

The workshops have covered Endnote, RefWorks, Zotero, Mendeley, and a general Introduction to Citation Management to help you choose the best tool for you. These tools make it easier to create your bibliography and keep track of your references. 

If you were unable to sign up for a workshop this fall, Contact me, Kathy Herrlich. I can send you a recording of a webinar if one is available for the workshop of your choice.

Citation Management Programs

Is there software to help manage my citations?

Yes! EndNote and RefWorks are licensed for use by current NU faculty, staff, and students. The open source product Zotero and the free version of Mendeley are two other options that the library supports. Any of these programs can help you collect and manage your references, and auto-format citations and bibliographies in your papers. (Choose just one; they are not meant to be used at the same time.)

For more details on each program, see the introductory pages for EndNote, RefWorksZotero, or Mendeley or watch a short video on Choosing a citation manager.
