Looking for a Citation Machine alternative?
Frustrated with the citation/bibliography generators out there?
We did the research for you so you don’t have to. So what is the difference between all the citation generators available out there? Which is the best option for you? The one that will suit you the best?
Did you know that the reason Citation Machine, Easybib, and CiteThisForMe all work so similarly is because they are Chegg-owned? (All owned and controlled by one company - Chegg)

@CiteMachine The new website layout is awful. Please change it back.— Josh Lee (@SecondRateHero) May 24, 2020
@CiteMachine when will your site be up again I need my bibliography 😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭— Snoopzilla (@samanthalane311) October 15, 2019
I absolutely hate the new version of the Citation Machine. The new version is not user friendly, it is difficult to review previous citations, and is cumbersome. How can I revert back to the previous version? I have had an account for over 2 years & I am so damn frustrated now!!!— Kim Stokes- Edwards (@kimmiejs) May 15, 2020
@CiteMachine Please, change back your site layout to the previous one. I has been working on a paper a few days ago when you changed the layout and half of my work disappeared! Now citing has become a lot more tedious! Previous version was much much better and easier to use.— Anastasiya Sindya (@anastasiyasind) May 13, 2020
