Nothing’s worse than the crushing realization that despite finishing your essay, you still have to spend the final hours before your deadline writing out your reference list. Worse still, nobody you know seems to understand exactly how you’re meant to cite in the first place. Even your professors all tell you something different. So stop worrying about your citations; we have the solution! Download the RefME app for free here, or sign up at RefME.com to get your bibliography done in a matter of minutes.
