RefME - Referencing Made Easy Review

What is RefMe?

RefME is a bibliographic reference generator that works with more than 7,500 citation styles (including MLA and APA) and cites more than 40 types of sources (including books and websites). 

RefME is a valuable tool for students and researchers who need to create and manage their citations. It is easy to use and offers a variety of features that can help save time and improve accuracy.

RefMe is an invaluable app for students, and non-fiction writers of all kinds. If you are writing a research paper, this app will create your reference for you! You can then easily export your references by emailing to yourself or to Evernote.

One of the site's main features is its WebClipper, a tool that you can add to your browser's toolbar and click to "clip" websites and automatically cite them in the style of your choice. The site also has a mobile app available for iOS and Android that you can use to scan ISBN bar codes on books and journals and automatically cite those resources, too.

Citations can be organized into project-specific pages, and you can annotate each citation with quotes and notes. The website also includes a link to a quick citation generator, in case you need to generate a citation in a particular style on the fly.

RefMe stands for "Referencing, Made Easy," and that's exactly what it is. This digital system ably replaces the old-school index-card system for research projects with a simple cloud-based system that's easy to add to and use in a ton of  contexts.

Novice and experienced researchers alike will love this system that takes the stress and guesswork out of properly capturing and citing resources. This lets students concentrate on honing other critical research skills, such as ensuring they cite every source they use, keep those sources organized, and appropriately integrate analysis into their quotations from their cited sources.

What happended to RefMe?

RefME was shut down on March 7, 2017, after being acquired by the education company Chegg, Inc. However, the Cite This For Me service is still available and offers many of the same features as RefME.
