EndNote and Zotero are the two popular citation management tools that I would recommend for UCSF nursing students to use. Citation management tools can help you organize your personal library of journal articles/books/websites/grey literature, generate in-text citations, and create a reference list in any style of your choice. For nursing students at UCSF, you will use APA the 7th edi.
Zotero can help you save a great deal of time when you are writing a paper.
What can Zotero do for you while you are writing a paper in APA 7th ed style?
1. create your personal database to store articles from various resources (databases, web sites or government documents, etc.)
2. insert in-text citation in APA 7th ed style while you write a paper
3. create a reference list in APA 7th ed style
