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.
ReferenceME is an award winning iPhone and Android app that can help you compile your references in a matter of minutes. Now it’s available on the web too putting all your references in the cloud, ensuring students have no excuses to still be writing up their bibliography the old fashioned way.
How does it work? Just use your phone to scan the barcodes of the books and journals you’ve used, and the app does all the hard work for you. Within minutes your pile of books will be converted alphabetically into a bibliography using Harvard (and other styles) that you can paste into your essay or dissertation.
Need to include e-journals and websites in your references? ReferenceME also has a range of browser plug-ins to convert web URLs, ISBNs, and ISSNs.
ReferenceME also syncs content between your app and computer and backs up all your citations to the cloud so you can access them from anywhere: perfect for when you’re working on a library computer. Plus, you can export your bibliography and citations to email and Evernote too.
With less time needed to get your bibliography in order, there’s now no excuse to be late submitting your essay (apart from all those hours spent procrastinating of course!) You might even be finished in time to celebrate with a night on the town before deadline day. Just make sure you set an alarm!
