What is RefMe?

RefMe used to be one of the international citation services. It included the RefMe APA, RefMe Harvard, RefMe Chicago, and a range of other tools for the generation of citations. Since 2017, when the RefMe generator was purchased by Chegg Inc., the website has been moved to Chegg’s own services for citations, Citethisforme.

What were the pros and cons of RefMe?

As the Ref Me service no longer exists and has been replaced by Citethisforme, we advise you to see this article for the main pros and cons of Chegg’s current website for citation generation.

How is Grafiati better than RefMe / Citethisforme?

Since the very beginning of the existence of our service, we adopt a manual approach to work. We never use the faulty open-source citation generation code used by Zotero, Mendeley, or Citethisforme, and write every piece of algorithm on ore own, based on a deep analysis of the publication manuals of each citation style; we also adapt all references to the language of each particular country with the involvement of professional linguists. As a result, our users get spot-on references & citations and perfect quality.

We are an independent service, which allows us staying fully committed to our users. You can be sure that you will continue getting your dedicated customer service and support, as well as the steady development and updates of our features.

Here are just some of our most prominent features:

  • a 100% online service;
  • the most popular citation styles such as APA, Harvard, MLA, Chicago, etc. totally adapted to your language and country;
  • the most accurate, deep, and refined references and citations on the web;
  • correct ordering of references and formatting of the bibliography page;
  • many unique tools to make your citations easier and faster;
  • free availability with additional premium features;
  • full adaptation to all devices.
