Guide to reference managers: How to effectively manage your references

About this video

Reference managers are a researcher’s best friend. Most researchers think of reference managers as a digital bibliography creators – and, surely, that’s true – but they’re also much more than that.  They can help you automate your citations in word processing programs, they can help you make organized notes as you read papers, they can be your filing cabinet for all the different documents on your desktop, and they can make your entire bibliography accessible anywhere in the world through web and mobile apps.

In this webinar, Daniel Christe, Innovation Advisor at Elsevier, and Jorge Sinval, researcher and reference manager advisor will take a deep dive into how reference managers like Mendeley can be used to help you get your references organized, and answer the top questions of Mendeley users.
