Looking for an EasyBib 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 EasyBib, Citation Machine, and CiteThisForMe all work so similarly is because they are Chegg-owned? (All owned and controlled by one company - Chegg)

Anyone else notice Easybib became super advertised and gross since 2015? What a let down. That used to be the best. @EasyBib— Sam Eastling (@Sameastling) June 12, 2020
I get you gotta make money but try something else, partner with schools. The site looks like a game website from 2007.
I tried to use EasyBib which I used a lot in high school and the whole website is squeezed into one corner and the rest is blinking ads and pop-ups, I thought I had died— s. bee (@civic_booty) July 20, 2020
Anyone else think citation machine and easybib are trash now?— yikes (@hellahall) July 20, 2020
Easybib has gotten so much worse over the years oh my god— Erin 🌈 (@ErWeAreArts) July 11, 2020
Ugh I used to use Easybib in college, but the ads kept freezing my computer and it was such a nightmare— Augusta Atinuke 🇳🇬 (@AugustaAtinuke) July 11, 2020
Easybib and Citation Machine take way too long to use because they have way more ads than any website that people actually use— IG@MemestersLocal666 (@_ML666) July 12, 2020
Yo whoever is in charge of the amount of ads that play on @EasyBib can literally go suck my toes— Nathan Graves (@GahannaNate21) April 15, 2020
EasyBib sucks ever since Chegg bought it— BLM&ACAB (@lilcrystalgirl) February 19, 2020
