In scientific work it is common to work in teams, while dealing with an abundance of literature. With the help of a literature management software these can be collected and managed as well as exported in bibliographies. Many online sources offer functionalities to import references into reference management tools. However, the entries are often incomplete or faulty. Hence, this thesis covers a concept for a reference management platform that supports collaborative work and quality assurance of references.
