Bibliographic software packages perform two important tasks that are indispensable for researchers and clinicians. First, they create, store, and maintain bibliographic databases consisting of references that can be typed in or downloaded from a commercial vendor of bibliographic data (such as Grateful Med, Paper-Chase, or a CD-ROM-based MEDLINE system). Second, they generate a perfectly punctuated and styled citation list, ready to be attached to a manuscript or grant proposal, that can be formatted to the precise specifications of any given journal.
Among the numerous packages on the market, Reference Manager is an excellent choice because of its well-designed, clear interface and exceptionally smooth operation. The package is user-friendly, fast (even with large databases), and simple to learn. Within minutes, an experienced computer user can start operating the software. Both the help utility and the manual are clear and self-explanatory.
