Home News Important news about RefMe

It has been announced that RefMe will be changing after February 28th, 2017.  Full details on this news can be found on the RefMe website but here are a few important issues to note:

  • RefMe is merging with CiteThisForMe
  • If you want to create an account for CiteThisForMe it will cost £6.99 a month, you will however be able to generate a reference list without making an account but it won’t save for future use.
  • If you have a RefMe account you will still have access to your account and saved Reference lists until June 1st, 2017, but you will need to export them before this date or you will lose them.
  • The Export function enables you to copy and paste your references as well as save them to Word and as a .ris file, which is the preferred file format for importing to other reference management tools.

There's a list of free alternatives to RefMe on the Bibliographic Management page.
