Why use reference management software?

It allows you to:

  • collect references
  • store all references at one place (online or on your desktop)
  • organize the references
  • add notes to your references
  • link to full text, web page or to upload file
  • share references with colleagues
  • cite your references in text
  • automatically create bibliography
  • easily modify in-text citations and bibliography

Author ID systems

An unique researcher identifier, used worldwide, that you keep throughout your life, also when you change institution.

It identifies you and your work, and prevents confusion between you and others with the same name or initials.

Create your own ORCID and/or Researcher ID (Web of Science's own identifier) when you start publishing.
