Image from store Citable
Description from store Save citable quotes and notes in Google spreadsheets. Sick of manually tracking sources when collecting quotes? For students, researchers, and other professionals who do secondary research, Citable simplifies collecting quotes, notes and other data points along with the additional reference information needed to make a web citation. Notes are saved in a spreadsheet in your Google Docs to enable collaboration with colleagues and rigorous analysis of the collected notes. To collaborate online, simply share the spreadsheet. Collaborate using Post-its? Citable includes a printing template to simplify printing notes directly onto sticky notes for easy offline collaboration. Citable is secure and suitable for work. All notes are securely transmitted only between the specified Google account and your computer. Citable maintains your privacy. • Select some text before clicking Citable to quickly create a note. • Citable automatically saves the page title, url, and date. • Automatically saves the author of the current article on most news sites. • Add tags to organize notes and accelerate analysis. • Create new spreadsheets on the fly. • Spreadsheets are stored in a Google Drive folder called Citable, but feel free to rename it. • Collaborate simply by sharing documents and adding them to your Citable_Documents folder. • Quickly open and view the selected spreadsheet. • Print saved notes on sticky notes using Printable. • Sort notes before printing. • Export notes in popular formats including APA, MLA and Chicago. (beta) • Export notes in bibtex format for Zotero or your favorite citation manager. • Use shortcuts to save several notes quickly- while watching YouTube for instance. Shortcuts: command shift X Open Citable. tab Navigate between controls. alt return Quickly save note from anywhere in Citable. ctrl return Compose several notes from the same URL. ---------------- Version 2.3.7 Streamlined permissions.

  • (2021-05-01) MAS: May 1st, 2021 Good News! Citable working in Brave, Edge and Vivaldi now. To install in any of the browsers mentioned, including Edge, just go the chrome store inside that browser and install from there. Good Job Owen!
  • (2021-02-27) Coskun Ist: ❤ I need Android citable app 🎁
  • (2020-07-13) Daniel Herrera: I just can't log in to Google account on Microsft Edge. Please, fix that. I have being using this extension for years and it's wonderful.
  • (2020-01-13) Shaun Summers: Great tool. Very useful for research but also for keeping track of documents spread across various Cloud drives. I'd like to see the ability to add a couple of my own fields in a future version. Great work guys.
  • (2019-12-14) Mojtaba Vahdati: I only get the message: "Sign in with Google temporarily disabled for this app."
  • (2019-12-07) DIY CRAFTS: I like this very much, please fix this Sign in with Google temporarily disabled for this app This app has not been verified yet by Google in order to use Google Sign In.
  • (2019-08-17) Megan Seidman: This is a LIFESAVER for anyone who needs to save a lot of links. I've been trying to find something like this for a long time and I was ecstatic when I came across this. I highly recommend this extension.
  • (2019-06-24) Daniel Toma: Great extension, highly recommend for anyone looking to keep track of online resources - I am not using it for citation purposes but still find it immensely useful!
  • (2019-02-28) Timuçin Küçük: Verimlilik için müthiş bir uygulama, airtable versiyonunu da görmek isterdim
  • (2019-02-18) Elijah otor: Awesome tools for researchers.
  • (2019-02-10) Bryan Stark: One of the most useful tools for any researcher or student. While you look at webpages or articles you can highlight text and click the citable button and it will add it to a new or existing spreadsheet. Use it a lot to research!
  • (2018-10-09) Wojtek Nosowski: Does anyone know how to get it to work in 2018? Great concept but it does not create a spreadsheet :(
  • (2018-04-26) Rafael Vesga: Stopped when I clicked sign in with Google. Could not make it work
  • (2018-04-14) Stephane van der Aa: Too simple for me. Looking for a good web page annotation tool. This is not it. All it does is basically add a comment about a web page to a sheet. It does not keep track about where on the web change the comment is relevant to which means there's not much point in adding multiple annotations per web page.
  • (2018-02-21) Summer B: LOVE IT! I had been looking for a way to AUTOMATICALLY send copied web text to excel & found nothing...Used nppp with multiclipboard, but that stopped working with the new nppp version (didnt save to word/spreadsheet, but at least could access/edit unltd clipboard itms at once) Then found citable which does EXACTLY what I needed (cept with gsheets which is totally fine) & MORE! I can past my copied items into the extension, edit as necessary / take notes and then save them, which effectually automatically saves them to a sheet. Everytime u open the ext, you have the option to start a new sheet or continue in a prev one (in which new text is saved in the next open row). PLUS it automatically saves the link,date the row(note) was created, and tags (which u can create prior to saving) in different columns *If you're taking notes on a video (ie youtube), it will even save the time (min:sec) in the video at which you made the note, so you can know exactly when in a video specific/important parts are!
  • (2017-12-14) wilson parry: Great app for research....would be great to copy to bottom of a google doc. Often my links then get copied into a google doc for a report so hoping to find something on zapier or IFTTT or script to do this
  • (2017-07-26) Chelsea Robertson: It looks like it could be very useful, but like others have said, it doesn't save anything for me. Just asks to make a new spreadsheet, and nothing nothing nothing. SO BUMMED -- please help
  • (2017-07-16) angelica Salazar: I've gotten so much done using this nifty app. I love it so far.
  • (2017-05-17) Clever. Create automatically a Google spreadsheet with the notes and the page. I'd like to see text highlights, and more function, as clicking on the highlight and having the note, or drawing.
  • (2017-02-23) Vladamoir Krebenskow: hehe xd
  • (2017-02-19) Maurizio Delmonte: Love it!
  • (2017-02-07) Greg Lloyd: So sad! This sounds like a great tool, but like others have stated, it doesn't save for me. Asks to "create new document" but then never creates or saves. Maybe it conflicts with another app? Adblock plus? I wish I know. I'd like to share with my students if it worked.
  • (2017-02-05) Don Partlan: looks interesting, but I can't get it to save.
  • (2016-08-16) Jarno Duursma: The app I always wanted..
  • (2016-01-05) Máté Rémiás: Great one!
  • (2015-09-20) Mogens Lunde: Great extension! Would be even greater though if all "cites" went into the same spreadsheet, where the current file name then could be the value in column A. Then it would be much easier to sort and select in all the saved url's. I'm struggling at the moment to find a way to combine the spreadsheets automatically, but that's not easy in Drive.
  • (2015-09-14) peekpen: Forces you to sign-in with Google as a stipulation. A three year old unanswerable "alchemy" malware issue when connecting my browser to Google makes this extension a fail. Divorce it from signing in with Google and I'll use it.
  • (2015-08-28) Dario Caregnato: Doesn't work?
  • (2015-08-13) william Gonçalves: Muito boa esta ferramenta!
  • (2015-07-23) mTspace Evolved: best thing ever. used it to win court cases.
  • (2015-04-29) Yolanda Solo: I LOVE this extension. A clean and easy way to save things you want to add later. I know Evernote is great, but sometimes you just want something simple and effective.

  • (2021-05-03, v:2.3.7) Katherine Jarzecki: Citable sheet disconnected from app?
    I can't seem to access any of my citable sheets anymore, despite being logged in as the owner. When I try to create a new worksheet with links and immediately click to 'View Sheet', I'm denied access. I try to request access (from myself) but a link never gets sent to my email. I also don't seem to be able to select sheets created on my Google Drive from the dropdown menu in the Citable extension app. I have tried resetting my password numerous times, but it doesn't work. What happened? I'd really like to be able to quickly add citations to the bottom of my google sheet again - it's so convenient!
  • (2021-04-27, v:2.3.5) M S: I love citable, but I really love vertical tabs too. Edge and Vivaldi veritcal tabs are great. Chrome vertical tab extension are the pits.
    What are the chances you could get citable working in Vivaldi or Edge? I will be glad to be a tester.

  • (2019-03-05, v:2.3.1) Timuçin Küçük: do you have any advice to use tag system more efficent
    in tags data entry app takes whatever I write to tags column I want to give an entry multiple tags and I want to be able to filter them in google sheets. Is there a way to do this. Because I couldnt figure it out. When entering tags like "fruit,car,book" for one entry. App gets it as a block tag but not separate tags like fruit / car / book And it could be very handy if the app could remember my previous tags

  • (2018-10-09, v:2.1.4) W N: Does not work
    Hi. Does this extension work in 2018? It does not create a new spreadsheet for me.
  • (2018-03-12, v:2.1.4) Multiple users pushing to same doc
    Is it possible for multiple users to push to a single shared Google sheet instead of having their own? We have a Curation team in our business that searches for vendors, and it would be awesome if they could all push their research to the same doc instead of separate ones (this doc would populate on everyone's pulldown). Please let me know, thanks!
