Note. The Health Sciences Library does not provide access to any reference management software.
As systematic reviews aim to be comprehensive they frequently involve reviewing and managing large numbers of articles. Reference management software such as Endnote, Papers or Mendeley make this task much easier by:
Endnote is widely used and considered by many to be a standard tool. Prices are available at the Endnote website.
You may have access through any university affiliation. Alternatively you may choose to purchase these programs directly.
Mendeley is also widely used and is free.
Refworks is available free via the Clinicians Health Channel to staff of participating institutions (includes Melbourne Health, RWH and PMCC).
This Wikipedia page shows a comparison of available software .
These programs are not always intuitive and can take some time to learn, however the effort is worth it in time saved. There is a lot of online support available, especially on YouTube.
The library runs Endnote training sessions - see the Training @ the Library webpage.
