What reference management software do you use and why? Off the top of my head, I know about BibDesk, EndNote, Mendeley, and Papers.  I don’t know the pros and cons of each, or if there’s other solutions.  I personally use Papers as my research papers library and BibDesk for adding citations and references to LaTeX documents.  This is mostly because I always thought (incorrectly) that EndNote was a Windows-only Word plugin, and Mendeley wasn’t around when I started collecting papers for research.  What about you?

Here are some links I pulled from astrobetter.com that weigh in on this topic:
