The book is organized into three sections: an introduction to citation management tools, using a citation manager
, and helping patrons use citation management tools.
The product is currently transitioning to a new interface, referred to by the vendor as "new RefWorks." Zotero's free, open source citation manager
was initially introduced in 2006 as an extension for the Firefox web browser.
* Articles tools--These allow readers to export content to PowerPoint, to export selected articles to a citation manager
, to rollover and zoom images, and to "read" the image gallery.
* Citation Manager
enhancements--Include summary information at the top of the page, links to tables of contents of journal issues, and a print preview function
Is there a method to reliably convert citation data that does not rely on a specific version of a citation manager
and does not need any third-party software or scripting that requires additional training or tools?
The "Cite" button that appears on the menu bar at the top of most pages does not in fact offer the option to export directly to most citation managers
. Rather, one must tediously export to a file then import the file to a citation manager
, which even then yields minimal citation information.
Firstly, like Mendeley or other citation manager
tools, Colwiz will manage citations and PDFs.
Refworks: Searchers are able to de-duplicate all records from various sources in this citation manager
Additional new features include the ability to prioritize access to full-text content, the option to take the end user directly to the article if full text is included on the LinkSource menu, additional customization of the LinkSource menu, the ability to customize text messages to be displayed when an end user follows a link to full text, additional functions to support linking based on a second criterion if the first is not met, and access to the citation manager
Users also have the option of selecting many citations and choosing one of three actions: email to colleague, export to citation manager
, and add to saved items.
More than a citation manager
tool, colwiz is a community that develops around an individual's research interests, publications, and biography as entered in the public profile developed by each user.
