    Good afternoon,

    I'm aware this has been discussed in various threads. I need an update, however, on the most current PhD dissertation and bibliographic software. I know of Scrivener for the dissertation and Endnote, Nota Bene, Sente, and Zotero for bibliographies. Any suggestions besides these?

    Thank you,

    Perrla is about $40.

    Thanks Rich. I should have mentioned that I will be using Chicago Manual Style.

    Perrla is APA or MLA, but not Chicago, IIRC.

    What about Microsoft Word? Word 2013 will:

    Manage sources
    Insert and number citations (footnotes or endnotes)
    Format and structure bibliography
    Option to use the following citation styles: MLA, APA, Chicago, Harvard, Turabian, and several others
    Format the Table of Contents
    Etc...

    Have you looked at Noodle Tools? I have a free subscription and love it. I think it's only about $40 otherwise. It allows you to choose for every assignment the style you want to use.
