There are two ways to input a reference. You can either copy and paste the BibTeX citation directly from an appropriate source (electronic database or Google scholar), or manually input the details in the relevant fields. 
When you are finished just press add to reference list and voila!

After a reference has been added to the list you can click it and directly edit any of the fields. Then by clicking on apply changes you can save those changes.

Referencing formats are preset and customized for your current academic requirements. There will never be any need to for you to deal with referencing style details.

We are currently working on developing more reference types so you can reference pretty much anything.

Sure! Just click on the drop down menu on the upper right part of your screen and select new list. This way you can work simultaneously on as many lists as you want.

While the drop down menu in the list selection is active, just double click on the name!
