Child Life: Library Research Methods (Kolak): Research Management

Research Management Software

Research management software builds a permanent database of references, which can then be used to generate citations and references. Unlike citation generators, research management software will "remember" your library of references, so you don't have to re-find or re-generate the same references over and over. They also come with other useful features for research:

  • Keep track of articles and studies you've read
  • Sync your library of references or PDFs across multiple devices
  • Annotate and "mark up" PDFs, or keep notes attached to references

There following software options are recommended to manage your research (in addition to generating citations).
