Research Management

Research management tools help you keep track of your research. They can also help you cite sources using proper citation standards—but their output isn't perfect. Research management software can help you save time by allowing you to:

  • Collect citations from your online databases, library catalogues and websites
  • Organize, edit, and search through the citations you've saved
  • Build and organize bibliographies in well-known styles including the Canadian Guide to Legal Citation (McGill guide)
  • Format citations for papers
  • Take notes on articles and save them in your collection of citations
  • Save and organize PDFs, screenshots, graphs, images, and other files for your research

There are several research management tools available. UVic Libraries 'Citation management software guide' provides a good overview of several tools.

One popular research management tool for legal research is Zotero. Zotero works with the Canadian Guide to Legal Citation.
