The added value of reference software is significant. With a "reference manager" one can store, organize and share references, and, in addition, one can also easily include references in a publication (cf. footnotes and bibliography). That way, managing your references is a matter of a few clicks instead of a time-consuming manual job. However, within the field of law, we are faced with some challenges, as the Q&A style is not a reference style that is offered by default in Mendeley, Zotero or EndNote. This training aims to explain what is currently possible and how you can already use reference software.
