Choosing a Journal for Publication of an Article: Organizing Your Research

This guide features information resources useful for identifying major journals in all fields and details about them for those wanting to identify key journals or find publication details for known journal titles.

Bibliographic Management Tools

  • CiteULike
    Expands beyond traditional bibliographic management tools by connecting you with other researchers with similar interests; allows you to store and search PDFs.
  • EndNote
    Software designed to collect and organize research (among other things); compatible with EndNote Web. Yale University has EndNote available to students, faculty, and staff for free. The desktop version (recommended) is a download from the ITS Software Library (look in the Software & Technology tab). 
  • Mendeley is a free reference manager and academic social network that can help you organize your research, collaborate with others online, and discover the latest research
  • A tool from Thomson Reuters for citation management.
  • RefWorks
    Web-based tool available through the Yale University Library databases; free access to all Yale affiliates; ability to work off-line as well.
  • Zotero
    Free, web-based tool that works as a plug-in within Firefox. Zotero also has a desktop client that works well on all platforms.
    For information on EndNote, EndNote Web, Mendeley, RefWorks, and Zotero, see the library's Citation Management subject guide.
