I tried to see if this has been suggested before, but I believe a reference manager built into Edge for students and researchers could be a great addition. A reference manager collects data from a webpage, including Authors, date of publication and journal etc, and enables you to cite the work into your own work/bibliography. Many reference managers require a browser plug-in and a local application to run and insert citations into MS Word. If a reference manager were added, along with some type of built in integration into Office, it would result in students getting all their research needs from one place in MS products. 

 

I would be interested if other people agree!
