Resources for research in IMSE.

Reference Management Software



It's time to cite your sources!  Hmmm...

  • Is the author's name formatted as "Schares, Eric" or "Schares, E."?
  • Is the journal name italicized, or is it the article title?
  • Where does the publication year go?

Let reference management software build your citations automatically for you!  The Iowa State Library supports two reference managers, EndNote and Mendeley.  Both are free for ISU-affiliated researchers to use, and they both do similar things in slightly different ways.

  • Manage, read, share, and organize your peer reviewed journal articles
  • Insert in-line citations as you write
  • Build your paper's bibliography automatically with live updating
