Referencing made easy: this new time-saving app will save you from essay hell

ReferenceME will have your dissertation bibliography written in mere minutes


It’s taken all night but, at last, barely an hour before the deadline, you’ve finally finished your essay. There’s only one problem: you still need to write out your references.

Widely considered to be the worst aspect of writing any piece of university work, flicking through library books and e-journals in a search for publisher names and publication dates is a tiresome chore. The only thing worse is trying to remember how you’re meant to format your bibliography.

However, that could be all about to change. To download the app click here or visit the ReferenceME website for more information.
