Dear Junior Fellows,
Do you type your bibliography by hand every time you finish a paper? Do you have trouble organizing your hundreds of references and notes? You have to check citation styles often because they’re difficult to memorize?
This workshop is for you! Don of Hall Julian Posada will host a bibliography software tutorial on Monday, February 24 at 5:00pm in the Round Room.
All you need is a laptop and to have installed Mendeley and Microsoft Word.
For Mendeley, follow this link: https://www.mendeley.com/
For Microsoft Word, follow this link:
Some people are more comfortable with Zotero, which is open source (Mendeley is free but the property of Elsevier). I don’t use Zotero, but you can download it instead and we can figure it out:
Finally, for more advanced users, notably those using LaTeX (mostly natural & life sciences and quantitative social sciences), I can also propose a small tutorial on Markdown. For that, on top of the reference software of choice, you will need:
Any code source editor. I prefer Atom:
Again, the if there’s not enough interest in the Markdown tutorial, we can only focus in the reference software part.
