RefME is changing to Cite This For Me from 28 February 2017. See the main changes listed below

Are you a RefMe user?  Quite a number of science students use RefME to manage project citations so if that's you then please read on.

The app based student friendly citation freeware is changing to Cite This For Me from 28th February 2017. Some changes and access issues to look out for are listed below (with thanks to Neal Taparia from RefMe Support)

What’s staying the same?
Cite This For Me offers the same core citation features that allow users to automatically and accurately create citations, bibliographies, and reference lists.

You’ll still be able to easily create accurate citations and reference lists in thousands of styles, and Cite This For Me has a mobile app too

What will be different?

Chrome Extension – The Cite This For Me Chrome extension is available, but does not support adding annotations or adding to a specific 

Mobile App – The RefME mobile app will no longer be supported. Instead, you can access your work and create citations with the Cite This For Me mobile app after February 28th. Note that the Cite This For Me App does not support photo quotes or journal camera lookup.

Accounts - You will still be able to create citations and bibliographies, but the ability to create an account and save projects will be paid features. Current free users will be given account access until June 1, 2017.. Afterward, you can subscribe to Cite This For Me, or use the service without account and project management.

Word Add-on – The Word add-on for Cite This For Me will only support Windows, versions 2007 to present.
