Physician Assistant Capstone Project: Citation Managers

Why Use a Citation Manager?

Get Organized

Save Time


  • A place to keep all your favorite literature (e.g. articles, abstracts, conference proceedings, book chapters, etc...
  • May be a list of those articles with links to the full-text web versions.
  • May also be the place you keep your downloaded PDFs
  • Insert citations as you write (or after you have completed your manuscript)
  • Automatically generate bibliographies
  • Change the citation style in one click
  •  Share your library of your favorite articles (and other types of publications) with others
  • Collaborate on papers using the same "library" of citations
