Citation Management in the Health Sciences: RefWorks and Endnote

A resource guide to provide advice and assistance with EndNote and RefWorks.

What is a citation management program?

When you find articles of interest in a database or search engine, programs such as RefWorks or EndNote make it easy to pull the citations into a personal database and create a collection of references and cite them in your document - the software will automatically put in correctly formatted citations and a bibliography.  The Matas Library provides support for RefWorks and EndNote Web.  There are many other tools available.


RefWorks is a free, online citation management tool for Tulane faculty, staff, students and alumni.
