Zotero is a free and open-source citation management software. It has lots of helpful features, such as it web browser integration, online syncing, shared group libraries and integration with a number of word processors to generate bibliographies. We recommend Zotero to most students and researchers.
Download Zotero

Zotero is available for Linux, macOS and Windows. It is also accessible online through its web-based client. We recommend downloading the Zotero desktop client, and installing the extension for your web browser.

ZoteroBib: Quickly create bibliographies

Zotero's desktop client installs plug-ins for Microsoft Word, LibreOffice and Google Docs. These enable you to automatically generate bibliographies and in-text references in your chosen style. 

ZoteroBib lets you add items from across the web and generate bibliographies in more than 9,000 citation styles. There’s no software to install or account to create, and it works on any device, including tablets and phones. Your bibliography is stored right on your device — in your browser’s local storage — unless you create a version to share or load elsewhere, so your data remains entirely under your control.
