Is it intuitive to me? > Do I easily find the functions I'm looking for? Operating system > Which software can I use with my operating system (Linux, Mac, Windows)? > Which software offers a web version? > Which software offers a mobile version/app? Help > Are there any training courses for beginners? > Are there any materials for self training (e.g. videos, manuals)? > Is there any support if I need help (library, company, IT hotline, forums etc.)? Compatibility > What external programmes should my reference management software support (e.g. word processor) Costs > Does the software cost anything? > Is there a campus licence at my institution (university/company)? > Are there potentially additional costs (e.g. after leaving institution, need for more storage space)? What features should my reference management software offer? > Catalogue and database search from within the programme? > Indexing and structuring of content? > Searching for full text? > PDF editing? > Generating bibliographies? > Managing quotes / ideas? > Online access? > Sharing and/or jointly editing references? > Task planning? > LaTeX support? Where do I usually work? > Do I use always the same computer or do I switch sometimes? > Do I have permission to install software on the computer I use? > What reference management software do my colleagues/collaborators use?
