Citation Management Tools

This guide will help you learn how to use Endnote and Zotero, two citation management tools that can help you keep your sources organized and generate citations.

Creating a reference list

While the Cite While You Write (CWYW) plug-in (see the CWYW tab on the left) allows us to create a reference list from within a Word document, this section shows us how to get the list from within EndNotes. Hint: it would be easier if you have first put the desired references into a group (refer to the 'Organizing your references' tab on the left to see some guidelines on creating groups).

Click on the 'Format' tab, and select 'Bibliography'.


Select the group that includes the citations that you want to include, select a citation style, and file format.
