If you are at the beginning of your program and expect to be writing papers and proposals or making presentations, you may want to consider using RefWorks to help with your citations and list of references. RefWorks is a powerful Web-based tool that allows you to export sources (citations) from a number of databases, e.g., ERIC or Education Research Complete or PsycINFO. RefWorks also includes a number of organizing and management features.
