Reference Managers and Style Guides

Reference Management Tools

EndNote recommended resource
EndNote bibliographic management software exports bibliographies in many different styles and makes building your personal bibliographic database much easier. Both ACS and CSE are available as output styles in EndNote. A free web version is also available.

NoodleTools U.T. restricted
A web-based student research service that helps you correctly cite sources in MLA, APA, and Chicago/Turabian citation styles. Use NoodleTools throughout a research project to track your sources, take notes, create outlines, collaborate with classmates, and format and print your bibliography.

Zotero recommended resource
A free software tool to help you collect, organize, cite, and share your research sources.

Other commercial reference management and scholarly networking systems include Mendeley (Elsevier), ResearchGate, and The American Chemical Society offers ACS ChemWorx, which includes authorship tools. (Note: Research social network sites make sharing of papers easy, but that doesn't mean it's legal. Read your copyright transfer agreements carefully before posting any of your publications directly to networking sites.)
