Query about Arabist-friendly reference managers

Dear colleagues

Forgive me the very technical question. I am looking for a reference manager which would allow me to create custom reference types and styles. I have been using an old desktop version of Endnote for storing my bibliography for many years and now I would like to migrate to an online platform, but it seems difficult, for instance, to record modern editions of primary sources, or to use diacritics correctly. I would be grateful for any advice.

Thanks in advance and best wishes


CFP: Medievalists Without Borders: Cooperative Projects on Popular Culture in Islamic and Christian Lands

International Congress on Medieval Studies
Kalamazoo, MI
May 10-13, 2018
This session came about when we the organizers discovered that we each work on very similar topics in medieval popular culture, one of us primarily in Arabic and one of us primarily in Latin. We seek to build a roundtable at Kalamazoo as a kind of collaborator matchmaking site, finding scholars working on popular culture east and west who could benefit from knowing one another, and asking these pairs to present the results of their collaboration at the conference.
