Choosing a Citation Manager

Citation managers are amazing tools that can do so much for your research process, including:

Organize and save citations/articles.

Create in-text citations.

Share citations/articles with colleagues.

Generate Reference Lists in a wide range of styles.

Here are the citation managers we recommend:

Other Citation Tools

These aren't quite as robust as a full citation manager, but they're useful tools for creating citations. Remember though, no citation generator is 100% accurate. Please double-check your citations against the handbook to be sure they're right!

AMA Reference Resources

Print copies of the AMA Manual of Style are available for use at the Blais Family Library (19 Foster Street) and Professor Alcorn's office (room 207K, Lincoln Square). Access to these copies is limited.

The Cite Button

Most of the Library's eResources can generate a citation for you. Look for the Cite Button or other Citation Tools in these locations:

  • In the menu to the right of an article/abstract.
  • At the top of the results list.
  • Under each citation in the results list.
  • At the bottom of an article/abstract page.
