Reference managers allow you to collect, save and manage the references you find in databases, websites, or other sources in one place. Most reference management programs include a downloadable desktop version, browser version and perhaps also a mobile app. Also add-ons for word processors are available so that you can create citations and bibliographies, for example, with MS Word.
Please see also the Reference management software at University of Helsinki guide: links to instructions and download sites, self-study materials, guides and videos.

ORCID provides a persistent digital identifier that distinguishes you from every other researcher. Include your ORCID identifier in any research workflow to ensure you get credit for your work. In the future, using ORCID will reduce the need to enter data into a variety of different systems.
The University hopes that every researcher registers for an ORCID ID for publications, datasets, and other research outputs.
Create an ORCID id or add an existing ORCID id in your TUHAT profile, see instructions .
