Literature Administration

The literature administration program may be helpful for compilation of list of sources and bibliography for scientific purposes. This program enables import of references from literature databases using specific administration channels, as well as the automatic compilation of in-text citations and bibliography. In this case, the guidelines of the individual journals (outlay style) for the reference index are already featured in the program and are automatically modified.

The MHH has a campus licence for the literature administration program Refworks. This can be used free of charge by all members of the MHH. The most popular outlay style in the MHH is the Vancouver Style. This style was originally devised by a group of publishers of biomedical journals during a conference in Vancouver and contains the numerical grouping of the list of sources (Uniform Requierements for Manuscripts Submitted to Biomedical Journals).

The basic rules associated with the theme of citations can be found in the  Principles of the Hannover Medical School on Safeguarding Good Scientific Practice.
