Two basic pre-conditions are needed if one wants to be a researcher:
a) To read, read, read…..
This point does not need explanation, just one MUST read A LOT and CONSTANTLY.
b) Have a bibliographic management software.
RefWorks has been my election for some time. But there is always a “but” each time I need to use it for my writing. My poor references are always a mess and for that a headache.
Some days ago I read about zotero. Now it seems some hope exists for my reference mess. (it is needed A LOT of time in order to put this boat in good condition).
Anyway, each person is a world, then each one will take its own decision about the support for their references. Zotero is just an option, which I recommend to put an eye on it!
