A citation manager is a piece of software that helps you collect and organize your research and create bibliographies and in-text citations. Citation managers generally offer a range of citation styles and features to choose from.
While citation managers generally have the same basic functions, each one offers some specific features.
Our citation manager comparison chart (below) can help you identify the features that will work best for you. See also our tutorial on choosing a citation manager.
You may wonder: are there tools to help with citation and references?
A EndNote Licensed product is available for use by current NU faculty, staff, and students. These tools can help you collect and manage your references, and auto-format citations and bibliographies in your papers.
The Digital Repository Service is a secure repository system, designed to store and share scholarly, administrative, and archival materials from the Northeastern University community.
To search for dissertations beyond NU, use ProQuest Dissertations and Theses, Global.
For help with writing projects, consider a visit to Northeastern's Writing Center. Same-day walk in service is available in 136 Snell Library; assistance by appointment is offered in the 412 Holmes center. Online consulting is also available (all appointments in EST).
