Mendeley help guides
Mendeley is another popular reference management tool. Deakin has an institutional subscription to Mendeley, so if you sign on using your Deakin email account, you will have access to:
- a much larger storage allowance (100GB), and
- increased sharing and other facilities.
You can find help and resources on the Mendeley guides website.
Zotero help guides
Zotero is a free, open-source reference manager. Check out their extensive documentation and support over on the Zotero website.
NVivo for Literature Review
Although some of NVivo's advanced features are for dedicated qualitative researchers, NVivo can also provide significant help with any kind of analytical writing.
In the NVivo for Literature Review guide we focus on literature reviews. The same techniques are potentially applicable to:
- conference papers
- book reviews
- legal memoranda or submissions
- student essays.
