Today I found an interesting tool for research support. When writing academic articles or just collection information concerning a particular topic, organizing the different sources can become a little bit difficult.
The Firefox-extension ZOTERO might help students and scholars to improve the process of organizing. Itâ€™s free. On the ZOTERO website you can find this information â€œIt includes the best parts of older reference manager software (like EndNote)â€”the ability to store full reference information in author, title, and publication fields and to export that as formatted referencesâ€
You can also ad tags and key words to the information collected. They can also be organised, be sorted and be exported. (According to the website, Zotero is a production of the Center for History and New Media at George Mason University. It is generously funded by the United States Institute of Museum and Library Services, the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, and the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation.)
