The internet has provided us with simpler and quicker access to the latest research published in science, allowing us to view and download articles to keep for future reference.
But how do you manage to keep such a mountain of papers organised, ensuring that you can easily find that paper you read the other week when cornered in a meeting with your supervisor? Luckily for you there is software that can keep all your papers organised, preventing those awkward supervisor meetings where you hectically search your computer for that crucial article.
Not only can this software help organise your literature, they enable you to easily cite any article in your library making the writing process much less frustrating. But which of these fantastic programs is the one for you? Over the next several weeks we are going to discuss different features of several of these programs, hopefully allowing you to pick the one that is right for you.
As an introduction to this series, we have compiled a table of the important features of the reference managers.
Stay tuned for our next post on Mendeley.
