RefME is changing

You may have already heard that RefME is changing, but what exactly do those changes mean for you?

1. RefME has been acquired by Chegg

Chegg are an educational company that operate Cite This For Me (CTFM), another citation tool. As of 7 March, RefME will become Cite This For Me and you will have free access to this tool until 1 June 2017. You will be able to access your work on or after 7 March via this link.

2. Is it free?

If you have a free account with RefME, you will be able to log in to Cite This For Me with your RefME credentials and access your work until 1 June 2017. After this, you will need to pay a subscription for a premium account with CTFM to access your work.

Alternatively, you can still use CTFM for free after 1 June, but you will not be able to save references for future use. You can export your reference list immediately via email and save it as a word document.

3. Are the features the same?

Many of the core features you will be used to with RefME are very similar. You can still scan book and journal barcodes to generate references, build a bibliography or reference list with personalised referencing styles, sync your account to your phone and download your list straight to your email.


For full details of the switch over to Cite This For Me, and any changes to your access, please see this FAQ.

Don’t forget that we have our own citation tool at the university! You can access EndNote here to begin creating references with the Library Catalogue and OneSearch.
