About Citationsy

Citationsy was founded in 2017 after the reference manager Cenk was using at the time, RefMe, was shut down.

It was immediately obvious that the reason people loved RefMe — a clean interface, speed, no ads, simplicity of use — did not apply to CiteThisForMe. It turned out to be easier than anticipated to get a rough prototype up.
After the blog post about the process got mildly popular, people started signing up.
Now, over a three hundred thousand people use Citationsy.

Our team is 100% remote and we are commited to make referencing and research easier for students and academics all around the world.
