  • (2022-08-16) MUDASIRU OLALERE Yusuf: I had used several bibliography or reference creators, but I can affirm that MyBib is the best in terms of the usefulness and ease of use
  • (2022-08-11) Gabi Holdsworth: Absolutely amazing, best reference manage/citation generator I've tried. Literally got me through my degree, saves so much time and it really easy to use. Some of my favourite features: 1) You can save and organise references in different folders, for example if you're working on multiple assignments at a time. 2) You can attach personal notes/annotations to references, which is fantastic! 3) Love that you can easily modify a citation as you save it, so no need to go to the reference list to find it and edit it. 4) You can colour code folders, and individual references!! (although not a necesary feature, it makes me very happy)
  • (2022-08-10) Weemus Studio Presents: I would not be doing so well with my work for school and in the studio without this extension. We sing "LubmyMyBib" every time I use it which is a lot. I am not surprised that others agree. MyBib is the extension for me.

  • (2022-06-13) Tina: Makes my life so much easier. We have open book references needed exams at my school, and before i used to manually cite sources, which anyone knows are extremely time consuming. I also love the feature that checks if its a credible sourcve or not. You cannot trust it blindly, but its a great indicator. Same with referencing, it doesnt always pick up article author and such, so its clever to double check, but mainly i leave it as it is

  • (2021-06-19, v:1.1.22) F B: Erroneous spaces between words and colons
    Every time I generate a new entry, at least in Chicago format, there are extra spaces automatically generated between words and colons, so I have to manually go through my document and remove them. Please fix this. Here is an example below - note the extra space before the colon, after the word "Journey". There should be no space there. G.I. Gurdjieff, The Inner Journey : Views from the Gurdjieff Work, ed. Jacob Needleman (Sandpoint, Id: Morning Light Press, 2008).
  • (2021-05-19, v:1.1.22) Kentaro Barhydt: Custom Citation Formats
    PLEASE make an option for users to create custom citation formats that we can easily copy-paste from the browser extension directly. I, like many other researchers, have my own Google Docs document where I list and take notes on many papers I read, and I use a custom heading format for each section of the document corresponding to that paper's notes (Title, Pub. year, Abbr. publication name, All authors first initial last name). It would be extremely helpful if we could create our own custom format to generate a citation in for the paper's webpage we're on, and easily copy-paste it into a Google Doc (or any other text document editor) in another tab. If this is added, I would make this my main citation generator extension.

  • (2019-01-20, v:1.1.9) Carol DeLis: Which of the hundreds of styles do this:
    [regarding an article on the internet] I do research papers on current events and need the date of when the ARTICLE was published. Totally CONFUSING to have a date of 2000 (when the website first appeared) when the citation is to a CURRENT EVENT.and was published Jan 5, 2019! Most styles I have tested leave out the 2019 date entirely. Which makes that style useless for me. Do you have a page of examples of each style so I don't have to test each one of the hundreds and try to remember which ones I have already tested when scrolling down the list? This is what I need: Title of article Date of the ARTICLE (and NOT the date the site was first on the internet) The URL of the article (which includes the website which does NOT have to be separate) Does NOT have "retrieved" date Does NOT have all those space-taking extra words of "accessed" and "retrieved from" and so on. To keep it simple and uncluttered. Title either in quotes or italicized, whichever. "Title", www.example.com/articletitle/otheridstuffofwebsite, dateofarticle. (date retrieved can be optional as long as there is no date of website (2000) and that there IS the URL and there IS the actual date of the article itself).
  • (2019-01-18, v:1.1.9) William Hart: Authours
    even on documents that I can easily find the authour's names on. Your extension never can find an authour, it happens on every single page I try to cite.

However, today, all of my students are getting the message 'Error in Formatting Reference" on new citations and previously entered citations. Is this a known issue or is there something I can do on my end to help with this? Thanks so much, Kelli Fitch
