Reference Managers

Reference managers help keep your references organized and format your paper. Zotero and Mendeley both have a style sheet for IEEE Citation Style and are free to use. Since Zotero was developed at George Mason University, you have free unlimited space on their server.

For more information, go to the tutorial and guide below.
