How much time do you spend on the references page? How many tears have been wiped away in frustrated anger? Did the absence of a comma cost you?
I’ve recently come to know a citation management option called Zotero. The best part? It’s free. And it thinks like we do–you can tag and categorize different citations and form a ‘playlist’ of your favorite citations to make life easier.
Look at that, I used “citations” and “easier” in the same sentence.
It’s both Mac and PC compatible (crazy, right?) and there’s a button for your browser to make one-click additions easier than…well, pie. (Because if you’ve ever made a pie you know it’s not easy.)
So, check it out. Stop wasting time with whatever citation method you’ve come to hate, and check out Zotero: https://www.zotero.org/.
