The good news is that all three citation management tools have features that allow you to:

  • Create a searchable database of your references
  • Manage PDFs
  • Take searchable notes
  • Create reference lists in APA and other formats and integrate with word processors to format in-text citations and footnotes
  • Collaborate with other researchers

All the tools are compatible, so you can move data from one tool to another.

So how do you choose? Take a look at Comparing Citation Tools: What to Consider for an overview of the tools. Research Management and Citation Tools @ Harvard lists current trainings offered.
