Citation managers allow you to save and organize references you gather during research. You can import citations from databases such as Academic Search Complete and JSTOR or manually enter citations. You can attach PDFs and images to the citations as well. Citation managers also generate bibliographies in a wide variety of styles.
Citation generators are tools that can assist you in creating citations for your in-text citations and footnotes or bibliographies at the end of your papers. Simply enter or import the citation data, choose a citation style, and the tool generates the citation for you.
