Reference management

Citavi and EndNote

The two well-established reference management programs Citavi and EndNote can be downloaded free by staff and students of the LMU through the LMU campus licence.

  • Reference management programs make academic writing much easier.
  • They can help you collect the results of your literature searches in one place and keep track of your progress.
  • You can insert citations into your work in a few easy steps and automatically create a list of references formatted in your chosen citation style.

A hint on choosing the best software: Ask members of your subject community if there is any clear preference for either of the two programs.
