Ciara Healy, the librarian for Psychology and Neuroscience at Perkins-Bostock Library, will be discussing two citation managers, Zotero and Mendeley. Zotero is an open source citation management system accessible as a plug-in for Firefox, also working with Safari and Chrome as well as a stand-alone version that works offline. Though few, if any, citation management systems work seamlessly with legal databases like WestLaw and Lexis-Nexis, Zotero offers the flexibility of being able to capture, store and organize collections of citations for almost any web-based information. Mendeley is a citation management system that has a web and computer-based presence that captures citation information and allows users to organize, share, track and collaborate with other Mendeley users around citations and .pdf documents. Mendeley is popular in Europe and offers detailed statistics, also know an "alt-metrics", on uploaded papers and citations.
