I have used EndNote for many years. Some other popular citation applications I know are:
- citeulike – a free service for managing and discovering scholarly references.
- Mendeley – a free reference manager and academic social network that can help you organize your research, collaborate with others online, and discover the latest research.
- RefWorks – an online research management, writing and collaboration tool.

- Zotero – a free, easy-to-use tool to help you collect, organize, cite, and share your research sources.
