1) Search for and pull references from online sources such as Crossref, PubMed, or by DOI. 2) Add references manually. 3) Or if you use a reference management application, get a BibTeX (.bib) file out of it, import it as an asset into your AuthorCafe project, pick and choose what you need, and cite the chosen references across projects.

This is usually a last-mile step and is more about publishing than authoring. It is something best focused on once you know your target publisher. In many cases, publishers provide this service, especially if your piece is commissioned. You can also find a suitable service provider right within AuthorCafe.

Authoring in AuthorCafe is free.

Up to 5 projects, 3 concurrent collaborators and 200 mb of cloud storage.
