Citation Management Systems

Wondering about EndNote, RefWorks, Mendeley or just how to deal with a large number of citations?  Talk to your Information Specialist about your citation management options.

Literature Searches

From simple to systematic, your Information Specialist can perform literature searches to help you support your grant application, as well as teach you how to effectively choose and search databases for your topic.

Researcher Identity Tools

You may require a researcher identity number (for instance from ResearcherID, ORCID, or a similar service) for either your grant application, or when you publish your findings. We have a guide to some of your options (linked below) but if you have any more questions, please feel free to contact your Information Specialist!

Researcher / Research Metrics

You may need to include researcher or research metrics in your grant application.  We have a guide that will help you with the basics of citation searching and finding an H-index, linked below, but if you have any more questions, please feel free to contact your Information Specialist.
