Software applications that help to organize your research. Collect citations, store PDFs, create bibliographies in selected formats, and more.


  • Another free, open source software with upgradable storage
  • Collaborate with others
  • Organize research into collections that act like iTunes playlists
  • Import references by downloads from desktop
  • Tag your items with own keywords; include PDFs
  • Access from anywhere, sync on any device
  • Privacy setup not as easy to understand as Mendeley
  • Zotero groups can be private or public; discover who has similar interests. Again, may appeal to seniors looking for grad programs, building contacts
