Medical Literature Management

We recommend to early (immediately) start to keep track of your references, by either using a special reference software. Please refer Wikipedia for comparison of the reference management software.
Often institutions have subscriptions to journals and can give you access to the PDF files. Further, many journals open their material to the public after a certain period of time. Thus, it makes sense to try to get a hold of the papers electronically. Sometimes it also helps to contact the authors directly. And most are happy to hear that someone out there reads their stuff.
