RefWorks will save you hours--literally!--of time. This citation management software can store all your articles and reformat them to meet the requirements of just about any journal. Furthermore, there are special applications like "write 'n cite" that allow you create footnotes and citations as you write your paper! As you perform your research in the library catalog, databases and other online resources, use RefWorks. Just remember to proofread your works cited (or bibliography or references) page in case a citation wasn't formed properly in a database.
Looking for another option? While not as powerful as RefWorks, Zotero offers a free web-based citation management option. RefWorks is free to students, staff, and faculty at the University of Florida. Zotero is free to everyone!
