This guide is intended to help the Cal State LA community with conducting systematic reviews and accessing help from librarians with systematic reviews.

Why use a Citation Manager

Below you will find a list of citation managers, including Refworks which is paid for by the library. Citation managers are a great way to store, organize, and cite your references.

  • Store and organize your citations
  • Share your citations with other researchers
  • Allow you to de-duplicate your citations
  • Save time inserting citations into Word, Google Docs, and more
