Citation Manager Style Sources

If you use a reference or bibliography manager such as Zotero or EndNote, you can download supplemental styles for them to match the requirements of your class, professor, or journal.

Collaboration Platforms

Open Science Framework (OSF) is a free and open-source project management tool and data repository, run by the Center for Open Science.

Its flexible file and contributor structure makes it great for managing individual projects and for collaborations.  You can link it to services you already use in your projects such as github, Dropbox, or Google Drive, while keeping those documents linked all from one central location easily sharable with collaborators.

OSF has great introductory materials, including written and video tutorials online.  If you'd like to contact a Science Librarian or Research Data Specialist about OSF, please contact us for an appointment.

Zotero groups are available to users who make a free Zotero account.  You can use the group to share citations with group members.  Groups can be public or private.  Please visit Zotero's website for more information about creating a group for your project.
