Organising and managing your literature is often a challenging task if you have to do it manually. Having very good literature and later realising that you cannot remember the reference is a common occurrence. Trying to recall such a reference is nuisance you may have experienced at one time or another during your research. A reference management software helps you insert citations into a paper and create a properly formatted bibliography. This will save you the stress of trying to format your references and citations.
