Citation Software


Flow is a cloud-based citation management tool that can not only capture citation information from articles in databases and web pages, but can also capture the content of those web pages and articles, usually as a pdf or html file stored in Flow along with the citation.  Flow can be used to store collections of resources to share with others, to create bibliographies in the citation style of your choice, and also has tools that integrate with Word or Google Docs to create in-text citations as you write.
