RDIAS is organising E-Workshop on the Basics of Zotero & Mendeley (Literature Survey Tools). Creating references and citing published work in research writing is one of the most critical areas in producing a well-rounded piece of writing. Adopting a specific style of creating references is increasingly being required by publishers and Universities.
