A new academic year is upon us and I thought it will be a good idea to write a small post about a very useful tool called RefME.

As a student, referencing your material is crucial. So here is a quick break down of the most important points of this application:

  • supports Harvard referencing style among others
  • you can create projects and manage your references within that project
  • you can collaborate in a project with fellow students
  •  chrome extension to add references as you browse the web
  • you can use your phone camera to scan journals or books barcodes
  • works with Word, Mendeley, Endnote, Refworks … to name a few
  • you can use it for books, webpages, videos, journals and others
  • mobile apps for apple and android devices (windows coming soon)
  • and of course is syncing your account across multiple devices
  • did I mention RefME is free?

For more information have a look at RefME website: https://www.refme.com/i/b/.

Good luck in the new academic year!
