To what purpose do I use reference management software?

Reference management software supports the process of academic research and writing. It simplifies the compilation, administration and organisation of your literature and other information. When writing your texts thereafter, these programs help with consistent citation and assist with compiling your bibliography.

Is reference management software subject to a charge?

There is cost-free as well as fee-based software. Zotero, for example, is a free program. Fee-based software is partly provided free of charge in limited versions, such as Citavi. There are also temporally limited test versions available, as offered by Endnote.
