Reference management software Reference management software, citation management software or personal bibliographic management software is software for scholars and authors to use for recording and utilising bibliographic citations (references).[1] Once a citation has been recorded, it can be used time and again in generating bibliographies, such as lists of references in scholarly books, articles and essays. The development of reference management packages has been driven by the rapid expansion of scientific literature. These software packages normally consist of a database in which full bibliographic references can be entered, plus a system for generating selective lists of articles in the different formats required by publishers and scholarly journals. Modern reference management packages can usually be integrated with word processors so that a reference list in the appropriate format is produced automatically as an article is written, reducing the risk that a cited source is not included in the reference list.

Ellie Harries tackles Mendeley, Zotero and EndNote in a browse at the choices available for those who find themselves stuck in a referencing rut. Referencing is an essential feature of all academic research and rapid technological advances have contributed to the proliferation of programmes which can help researchers systematically manage their references. Referencing software allows researchers to build up personal libraries of articles, notes and citations and some tools even allow you to share papers and notes with colleagues.

How to choose a reference manager Reference managers have become an essential component of any researcher’s toolkit, enabling them to store, reproduce and share their bibliographic information quickly and easily. Compatibility with standard word processing software has potentially saved days of extra work, manually creating and formatting references. Early Days The first package, Refman from Thomson Reuters was launched as early as 1984 (reference from Wikipedia); wider adoption of reference management software didn’t occur until the mid-nineties when the connected electronic environment facilitated database linking to individual computers. For more reference manager history, see From Sci-Mate to Mendeley - a brief history of reference managers from Nature Network Blog, Trading Knowledge (which has since ceased trading). Looking for extra value These days, the core functionality of reference managers is largely taken for granted as a software commodity for compiling bibliographies. Additional comparisons

Построение карт восприятия: концептуальный подход и метод анализа данных ведущий консультант аналитического департамента, компания «Маркетинговые и инвестиционные проекты» Изучение особенностей потребительского восприятия брендов является одним из важнейших технических элементов стратегического маркетинга. Пристальное внимание к этой проблеме было привлечено предложенной в 1972 г. Э. <1> Более подробно см.: Райс Э., Траут Дж. По мере распространения этой концепции возникла потребность в инструментах анализа сходств и различий между брендами и описывающими их атрибутами, возникающими в восприятии потребителей. Использование методов многомерной статистики для изучения восприятия выразилось в формировании отдельной группы методов, называемой картами восприятия. Удобство графического представления информации наряду с широким распространением современных статистических пакетов привело к росту популярности использования карт восприятия и увеличению разнообразия используемых для этой цели статистических методов.

MyReading Project « C&LS Reading List Project For those of you who’ve added journal articles to MyReading from Summon, the recent upgrade has thrown a tiny spanner in the works — the new “Direct Linking” feature links directly from Summon to the article, and bypasses the link resolver page which has the “add this to MyReading” link. So, I’ve decided to bring forward something that I’ve had on the development back burner for a few months now… Adding Items Directly from Summon This is currently being beta-tested, so you won’t necessarily see it when you use Summon yourself, but the aim is to add a “MyReading” button next to every result… …clicking on the button brings the reference information across into MyReading… …so that you can add it to a reading list… At this point, the reference in the reading list is now linked to the result in Summon, which means we can bring in extra functionality, including: the abstract for the articlethe URL Summon uses for “Direct Linking”subject terms (which link back out to Summon) Update: 29/Nov/2011

How this guy used webinars to make $6,300/hour This guide is based on Mixergy’s interview with Lewis Howes. After an injury ended his career as a professional football player, Lewis Howes started a successful webinar business and made $6,300 in one hour. It was all done using webinars to drive sales, so we invited him to teach you how to do it. Lewis is the author of The Ultimate Webinar Marketing Guide, the book that teaches you how to connect with your audience, build your list, and use webinars to sell. Here are the actionable highlights from the interview. 1. Lewis didn’t have a product to sell in his first webinar, so he decided to offer three hours of live training on LinkedIn for $150. Take Action: Select a product you’ve already built, create a new product using your expertise, or choose another company’s product to sell for a commission. 2. Lewis created groups on LinkedIn and collected 30,000 email addresses from the group members. Use social networking to gather email addresses of people who might be interested in your product.
