Research Tools
Create a bibliography in half the time: 
Your paper is written. All that stands between you and the finish line
is the bibliography. Enter your sources manually, and Carmun will format
them automatically. All you then have to do is hit print. 

Organize sources from past work: 
By uploading bibliographies from past papers you*ll never have to
hunt for lost citation information again. All your sources can be stored
on Carmun. Once they are uploaded, you can manage them in the same way
you manage your music on iTunes.

Bookmark URLs and save citations you find online: 
Keep track of websites and citations. To help you save time and stay
organized, "Post to Carmun" will store URLs and citation information
with a click of the mouse. 

Insert parenthetical citations and footnotes while you write:
"Notematic", select the project list and citation style, Carmun does
the rest.
