Tools for Managing Citations

Librarians at the Sheridan Libraries can help you use RefWorks for your research. Just ask your department's liaison librarian for assistance, or send an email to with a question.

There are many other citation management programs available and you may wish to use one of them. We only offer very limited help with most of those products, but we provide robust support for RefWorks because JHU has an institutional subscription for that product.


JHU affiliates can get a web version of EndNote through our Web of Science subscription.
Library home page --> Databases --> web of science. Then choose "EndNote," at the very top of the page:


You will be asked to register, if you haven't already. Here is the Quick Start guide.

Please be aware that the web version of EndNote is more limited than regular EndNote.

Academic departments who want EndNote can go to the JHU portal at --> Technology --> My Software --> click the catalog link, and search for   endnote

There are many different tools available to help you

  • store and organize your PDFs
  • insert citations into documents
  • share your citations and papers with others
  • collaborate with others.

These products change constantly, so keeping up can be difficult. Try the Comparison of Reference Management Software entry in Wikipedia for your general questions.
