"Saved my butt for school!"

What do you like best?

To be honest, writing bibliographies is a pain in the ass. Further, there are so many different systems that, as soon as you switch disciplines or even publications, you're flipping back and forth, trying to remember which style is the correct style. EasyBib does it all for you. The amount of time I saved using this product is uncountable!

What do you dislike?

Although I understand that free accounts come with advertisements, the ads for this site are really in your face. They take up most of the site, in fact. It was quite distracting most of the time, though I like that a premium account gives you the option to rid yourself of them.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I don't have any particular recommendations for this product as it's pretty straightforward.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I actually use EasyBib for school, as opposed to business. EasyBib has helped me to properly site sources for everything from papers for a film class to lengthy proofs in my 400-level math courses. I really can't recommend it enough if you're a student or a scholar of any kind. I also wish that I had known about it when I was working as a copy-editor!

"Easybib.com got me through grad school!"

What do you like best?

Easybib.com is so easy to use and is available for several different formats. It not only generates citations for a one-time use, but is easy to follow along to teach the user for future citations with its research guides and other resources. It can pull titles and sources directly from a URL, ISBN, or title, or search by keywords. It is so simple to use!

What do you dislike?

You didn't used to have to pay for APA citations, but they've switched to EasyBib Pro which requires you to upgrade your account to cite using APA.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Easybib.com is a great tool no matter how familiar you are with certain citation formats/styles. I've used it to generate brand new citations, and to check my own work against easybib.com. It is a really useful tool for folks in school, higher education, and other research industries. Depending on what format/style you need, I would recommend upgrading to EasyBib Pro to have access to more citation styles.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I used Easybib.com all through my undergraduate and graduate degree coursework. Now that I am a scholar working higher education working on my first professional article, easybib.com has been a terrific resource to check my citations. I can trust the software and know that, from experience, I am using proper citations.

"Awesome tool"

What do you like best?

Easy Bib is a very easy to use website. It elevates quite a bit of time and allows students to cite their sources correctly according to the required format. Students are still required to put in specific information, so they are still learning about citing their sources.

What do you dislike?

The website can be a bit distracting. There are often times quite a few advertisements, as this is a free site. The screen can have a lot going on, but the students only need to be using a small portion of the screen.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Ensure that students know what they are putting into the website, in order for them to be learning the requirements.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Easy way to properly cite sources for both students and teachers.

"Easy to use for citing websites"

What do you like best?

It may just be me, but I've hated citations since the first essay I had to write in college. APA, MLA, in-text and 'Works Cited'/'Bibliography' pages, they can be infuriating, confusing, time-consuming, and grade-determining. Fortunately for the citation-inept among us, Easybib create your citations for you. Website data can be automatically retrieved for the most part, and you may need to manually enter it in for some other media, but these will provide you with the proper format and even help you make the page itself.

What do you dislike?

It's not perfect. Sometimes I'll compare double check the citation with as The Purdue Online Writing Lab (OWL) to ensure all the citation meets the criteria.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I recommend this website for all college/high school students that have writing classes.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

When I was working as an IT Helpdesk, there were times when I have to send information/guideline to clients regarding there issue. I would do some research about the problem and gather the information needed and send it to the client. To avoid any trouble, I use Easybib to cite the source and following with the message to the client.

"EasyBib is easy to use: A must-use product for students and professionals alike"

What do you like best?

EasyBib is truly easy to use. I've never used a citation machine that is so easy and intuitive. Simply enter the link of the content you wish to cite and wah-la- EasyBib comes to the rescue. It also helps that it is a free resource.

What do you dislike?

Without going into too much detail, there are a few limitations to EasyBib. The site is laced with advertisements if you don't upgrade to the paid version - which is how they pay to keep the site updated, hosted, etc. The free trial is very short (2 days) and there are limits on which types of citations you can perform for free (MLA, APA, Chicago, etc.)

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I would recommend EasyBib for your education platform, however, please note that it is now owned by textbook giant Chegg, which may pose some issues down the road but for now, it's a solid platform that gets the job done for free - with most realizing they do not need the paid version of the product.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Providing this resource to our students is fantastic because it teaches them how to create and use citations correctly while providing ease of use.

"Excellent tool for educators"

What do you like best?

The ability to drop a website into a field and come up with a citation is an excellent time saver for students. That you can report sources is also a definite boon for east bib. free account to save your citations and the citation page formatted in alphabetical order is excellent as well.

What do you dislike?

The updates to MLA are slow. The cite has too many options, and citations must be reviewed. Also you can't sign in with face book. I have two accounts but I can't see why I would want to keep an account as opposed to just using it for free. side bar ads distracting and not helpful

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Keep using it. But double check your citations using primary sources. But the ability to create projects is great, use the it after teaching students the theoretical ideas behind citation as part of a lecture and then have student use easy bib for subsequent essay project throughout the semester. Its an excellent tool and easy to use. Students are definetly comfortable and familiar with it.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It is a great time saver ,which can help educators focus student time on more important outcomes.as opposed to the dry work of citation. Considering how pressed for time educators are, this is vital. The ability to share between multiple independent accounts is really helpful for group work in classes. Students can create the citation and then share and double check their accuracy.

"Great tool for students"

What do you like best?

I love that I can provide a tool to my students to create an accurate bibliography. As an English teacher, I do not always feels I need my students to memorize certain rules when those rules can be easily accessed via online programs like Easy Bib. As an educator, it is my job to teach students ho to be efficient and accurate. Teaching a tool like easy bib meets those requirements in my eyes.

What do you dislike?

I have yet to find a feature I dislike about Easy Bib; students can copy/paste a final works cited page into their documents in an accurate and simple manner. If that is a hurdle for a student, then perhaps using an online program is not the best scenario for that student in the first place.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

As a user, it should be implied that you still need to find the information for Easy Bib to organize and format; as an educator, this is a great tool for my students as they often struggle to find the necessary source information, but knowing where to find it and not just hoping a program will have it in a database is a positive.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

For me, it's not a business problem, but rather a solution and a tool for students to be efficient and accurate with their citations. It is critical to provide evidence and documentation in maintaining credibility and Easy Bib is my go-to tool to achieve both of those goals.

"Great product for students"

What do you like best?

EasyBib makes citing work so much easier for students. Instead of having to learn the skills of sourcing books, online sites, movies, etc., it's all in one place. Depending on which format is required for their class, they may have to spend a large amount of time looking up referencing guides. Instead EasyBib has it all in one place.

What do you dislike?

The website can be quite distracting due to all of the advertisements, however it is a free service so that is understandable. The site could be more welcoming and include some more design elements, but that's not much of a complaint!

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Great resource for students. It saves time so that they can concentrate on their essay/project instead of spending too much time on referencing their sources.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Referencing guide for students. Students are more likely to source a site and less likely to plagiarize.

"Lots of ads, slow running and not as user friendly as it used to be"

What do you like best?

I like that this is a free resource and that it does what it says it does, makes bibliographys. It's nice to be able to keep track of academic resources and use on papers and writing.

What do you dislike?

The website used to work and function a lot better before the ads overloaded the site. I feel like it runs a lot slower and the ads frequently make the site crash.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I would lose the ads. It seems that when I have talked to others about this resource and recommended it to students on campus they already know about it and complain about how slow it is. If they aren't working on a high speed or newer computer they almost always comment on how slow and annoying the ads are.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It definitely helps reduce the time spent creating bibliographies for our daily writing.

"Easyybib makes the citation process easy and simple"

What do you like best?

Easybib provides a very easy way for citing any journal or research papers in MLA, APA, or Harvard style before submitting them online. I don’t need to take care about the citation and just focus on the content part, thus saving my time and effort for creating the academic papers. Since Easybib is offered in online mode over internet, I can use it from anywhere and no need to install any plugins or executables for using it.

What do you dislike?

Although there is nothing for dislike in Easybib, but one thing is that sometimes author names and dates do not get shown up in the annotation, which leads to confusion.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

It will be a big plus if you don’t want to waste your time in worrying about the citation part and just focus on the content. Easybib will take care of your citation work.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It offers saving the citations in my online account instantly. So, whenever I need to use the old list, I just have to log in to my account and load the list easily. It also has an option to use annotations by simply using the annotation box.

I am using this to prepare most of my presentations and journal papers.

"Great for ensuring the accuracy of citations!"

What do you like best?

I like EasyBib for quickly and easily generating citations in both MLA and APA, which I frequently use. It allows me to make sure I've not made any mistakes going back and forth using the two.

What do you dislike?

While a lot of articles and books are available, the only thing I dislike is when I input a source and cannot generate all of the information.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Both for me and for my students, it doesn't get better than EasyBib to create citations that guarantee the sources they are using in their work are accurately and fairly cited.

"Nice Research tool providing accurate citation"

What do you like best?

What I really like about EasyBib is that it is well organized and provides efficient format which in turn helps me in time saving while creating a bibliography. IIt has great features for creating automatic references for the correct and accurate MLA formats and also keeps the track for the individual user whenever he logs in Easybib. It is a great tool which helped me to format the provided input material in the output format I needed such as MLA or APA styles. As soon as it creates the format, I can print it as well as attach it as a text document.

What do you dislike?

When I was trying to cite a book from the database, Easybib was not able to capture the information from that book. This was the only issue, otherwise EasyBib is a helpful and complete end to end citation and auto-format tool.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

It is a free tool and has got excellent features, so I would like to recommend it to high school students so that they can concentrate more on the writing part and need not worry about citations and format.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Before using EasyBib, I had to keep in mind about the format of the Bibliography I am going to create. But, it has eliminated that constraint for me. Now I can only focus on the content I want to write and EasyBib will take care of the proper formatting style in APA or MLA. It has helped me in generating a citation by providing the link to an eBook as an input reference.

"Incredibly Helpful Resource for Research and Publishing"

What do you like best?

Bibliography formatting has always been a struggle for me, so EasyBib has become something that I rely on to make sure that my citations are always formatted correctly. I appreciate that it is easy to use and that, quite often, the citations fill themselves in.

What do you dislike?

Occasionally I have had instances where I put in a URL link and the citation comes out completely wrong. However, this is extremely rare and seems to be a result of unusual formatting on the website.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Easy Bib is great for professionals and students alike. They are also a Google for Education partner, which is great if you use that platform as well.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Research is an extra responsibility at work, not part of my job description. So when it is time for me to work on research, I can't waste a single minute. Easy Bib helps me to cite my work properly and quickly, without having to spend time looking at MLA or APA guides.

What do you like best?

I love that you can easily add your citation to a document. No copying, no re-writing, so no typos!

What do you dislike?

There is nothing I dislike about EasyBib. It's such a simple sight to use.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Please explain to your students the reasoning behind using EasyBib. It's not right to plagiarize. Using EasyBib will make your students more authentic writers.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The problem I'm trying to solve is the tendency of my students to plagiarize. With EasyBib, my students see how easy it is to cite their sources.

"Useful tool for Citation"

What do you like best?

Easybib is an amazing program and I have used it all the time when I had to write research papers. It gives you the option to use different types of citations(APA, MLA). It is very convenient to use, is online and saves a lot of time in the tedious task of citation. Made my life very easy while I was working on multiple papers and was able to create citations quickly. It works amazingly well to identify sources from websites, books etc.

What do you dislike?

I faced this issue few tiimes that the author name or date did not appear in the citation. rest all is fine. I always did review the citation before submitting the paper to be sure of all the content in it.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

It is a great tool for citations. You will save a lot of time in creating citations and can cite multiple sources.

Different citation formats are available.

It is available for FREE and online access makes it possible to access it from anywhere.You can also download its app on your smartphone.

I would recommend this tool.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I used if for all the research papers wrote. It is a good tool to have. It helped me write citations very quickly which would have been a tough task had I done it manually. Saved me a lot of time and that I could utilize to improve my papers.

"Great Tool for all my Bibliographies! "

What do you like best?

This service is so simple and straightforward to use. I really enjoy the interface and questions that it asks. In many ways, using Easybib feels like I am talking to an expert who asks the right questions to dig down into what exactly I am trying to cite.

What do you dislike?

Though it is extremely useful that the service auto-fills based on a web page that it finds on its own, sometimes the information is incorrect and must be edited to make a publishable document. This only takes a few seconds of extra time, however, and the auto-fill feature is generally extremely useful.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I recommend using Easybib to anyone seeking to generate citations. I really like how simple it is to use and how straightforward the interface is. No other citation software has more adequately filled my needs.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I am solving the problem of having to cite my sources for scientific papers in both professional and academic settings. In academia, the ability to cite work effectively brings credibility to my work. In a professional setting, as I am making claims about a project or a product, it is vital to cite what I am using to justify this. For example, when submitting a document to my boss comparing different fuel pumps to purchase, it looks significantly more professional to have formal citations than just dropping a link at the bottom of the page.

"EasyBib Review"

What do you like best?

I like that you are easily able to take a website link and put it into the website and it will come up with a citation from MLA or APA.

What do you dislike?

It is a bit harder to use the citation manager when you have to look up information yourself such as from a book or magazine. The citation manager can also format oddly if you do not put in information correctly or you are using a web address. Finally, there are only a few "free" citation types.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I would recommend using the citation manager and then checking it against what your requirements are for citation to make sure they are correct.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I am able to cite my work easily from easybib.

"EasyBib Works for Short Bibliographies, But Doesn't Compare to Reference Management Systems"

What do you like best?

EasyBib is just that - it makes it easy to create a single citation for a bibliography. You can select different formats, and it can usually generate a full reference from an ISBN number or other small piece of information.

What do you dislike?

EasyBib does not have as much versatility as a reference management system, such as Zotero or RefWorks. It can still be time consuming to generate each reference in EasyBib, whereas Zotero or RefWorks can produce a full list of references in alphabetical order.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

It's a simple and free product which functions similarly to Citation Machine. Paying to remove the ads seems like a ridiculous option, as there are free reference management systems like Zotero that have more features! I would say only use the free version, and only use it if you are planning on making a short bibliography. Otherwise, use Zotero or RefWorks!

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

EasyBib creates citations, but it doesn't offer the full features of reference management software.

"Comes in handy when citing sources"

What do you like best?

The site comes in handy when citing sources for projects and essays. It is extremely student-friendly and easy to use, helping students to avoid the big fuss over plagiarism and formatting the sources. For me, it speeds up the entire project without worrying about the format.

What do you dislike?

In rare occasion the site becomes laggy and even unresponsive. It would even better if it is available on desktop and other mobile devices as a native application, rather than just a website.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Definitely worth a try. Its one of the only kind providing accurate and fast citation service. After all, it is mostly a free service.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The service provides accurate citations while speeding up the whole process, so saves plenty of time for projects and papers without any hassle.

"MLA citing at its finest"

What do you like best?

The ease of citing sources in MLA style and finding some information automatically are two of the features that I like best. Citing a source of a webpage just means putting in the URL and filling in some additional information. Easybib will take care of the formatting of MLA and one does not have to worry. Easybib follows the latest MLA7 format as well, and allows one to choose whether or not to include the URL or not, depending on the situation. Furthermore, when citing books, one is just required to enter the book title or ISBN in order for the book to be fully cited. This software is a major timesaver.

What do you dislike?

When exporting it to plain text and pasting it to word processing software, some formatting is not carried over nor is the indentation. The indentation needed to be manually added and it is a pity how this amazing software lacks the most basic feature.

There are also cases in which the website's information cannot be detected, in which case using Easybib would not be significantly faster. I look forward for their team to fix this current issue.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

EasyBib is definitely better than manually formatting MLA sources.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

When doing research, it is important to cite sources to prevent plagiarism and to increase authenticity and validity.

"Best Citation Tool Out There!"

What do you like best?

EasyBib is my go-to citation tool. Students of every grade level should have no problem completing the steps to create their citations. EasyBib walks them through it! All styles of formatting are available including MLA and Chicago. Once students complete the steps and type in the information for their sources, they simply have to copy and paste their created citation in their documents! The site is free and extensions are available on Google Docs.

What do you dislike?

One problem I've had is when students copy and paste their citations into a Word document or Google Doc, there is a blue box around the citation. Also Word and Google does not format the pasted citation properly, and students often times have to manually fix it. This is difficult for many students.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Anyone in the Education or Journalism fields

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It takes less than 5 minutes for students to create a works cited page. Students do not have to do much work besides typing their responses into the EasyBib steps.

"Great resource for all students"

What do you like best?

It is a free and easy resource for all students. All students are able to access the site from home as well as from school. With 1-1 technology, students are using their electronic devices regularly.

What do you dislike?

The interface is dated and due to being a free site, ads are often the main heading. Having an updated website may draw more students to the website. Having students potentially clicking on ads can be difficult if they are not used to navigating through free websites.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Students have an easy resource in order to correctly cite their references. Instead of them incorrectly citing sources, they have an easy way to correctly cite books and websites.

"Easy Bib Review"

What do you like best?

The interface and the ability to search for multiple ways to cite your sources.

What do you dislike?

The interface is good but can also be kind of confusing for first time users. I think the ability to chose from so many ways to cite sources is good but there are some ways advertised on Easy Bib that I feel like are rarely used.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Definitely worth the use in the aspect of journalism and or public relations. Provides a good amount of information and explains thoroughly what you are looking for.

"Cited!"

What do you like best?

The option of having a tool to generate bibliography from URLs/videos for your reports, papers and presentations is a cool news. EasyBib.com does exactly that! The ease of usage is wonderful and it is helping in reducing my burden.

What do you dislike?

It is a very good tool but the new tools like plagiarism is a bit expensive. And the research tool is a bit sloggy by the kind of results it generates, it needs to improve a lot.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

EasyBib.com is a good tool to help you cite for your thesis or paper. It does have a great scope for improvement. And hopefully the next versions would be much more accessible.

"Very helpful for writing citations"

What do you like best?

I like how easy it is to use and how simply it breaks down the components of a citation

What do you dislike?

I don't like how it often cannot find easily found items such as Publisher or other really prominent components of journal articles.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I think it is great, especially if your company or schools pays for it, otherwise I do think it is a bit pricey for one person.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

EasyBib helps me tremendously in school when I have to write many papers and keep up with numerous citations. It helps me keep track of all of the citations I am using and even alphabetizes them for me which is great.

"Simplifies the Citation Process Easily"

What do you like best?

As an English teacher, I find it incredibly difficult to teach citations. It involves rote memorization and copying the format exactly. Students have difficulty seeing how many spaces are needed, where periods and parenthesis go, and how their Works Cited should appear on a page. EasyBib.com removes so much unnecessary complications from this process. Students still need to do the work of finding reliable sources, noting the author and organization, and keeping all of their research together, but the website does the grunt work for them.

What do you dislike?

The automatic citation process needs some work. This feature allows users to simply paste a URL and the website pulls the necessary info- author, organization, date- but it doesn't always work properly.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

More teaching time is being devoted to the research, drafting, and writing process. Students do not need to know how to handwrite a citation, and this software generates an excellent citation for them. I also like the feature of being able to save and share citations; it is helpful for the editing and review process as well as keeping all sources in one handy place.

"Crucial time-saver for busy students!"

What do you like best?

It makes creating a works cited page such a breeze - this is essential for students who have to complete a lot of research papers, or submit papers in disciplines that use different citations (i.e. APA and MLA)

What do you dislike?

Sometimes the formatting on the citations gets funny, especially when copy-pasted into a Word document (always paste without formatting!) Also, students sometimes fail to learn the citations and rely only on this tool.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Proofread and check each citations - mistake happen! Always check that items were entered into the correct fields and that formatting looks right - and make sure students fix the formatting before entering into a works cited page.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Improving student effectiveness, and hopefully their understanding of different types of citations - it can be hard for them to memorize, but this makes them more willing to try and learn.

"Easy Bib - citations with ease"

What do you like best?

I like how educational and easy the easy bib citation engines are. Everything is laid out very well, and you just fill in the blanks. I tutor students and citations were always difficult for them. I'd direct them to easy bib and not only did it teach them the citation formats but it helped them double check their work.

What do you dislike?

I dislike the option to leave some areas blank. In the past I noticed alot of my students would skip right over the area where it has you fill in more necessary information that the engine can't source without you. This makes their citations incorrect, though it isn't really the engines fault and more so the students, I think it would help to make that step necessary.

What do you like best?

Easy Bib takes a lot of the hassle out of compiling sources into the correct formal for a bibliography. There are toolbar add-ons that allow for websites to be easily added with just the click of a button. One of the most useful features is the search function which alreadys has millions of resources cataloged (and is easily searchable by title, author name, or ISBN), even academic journals, thesis papers or dissertations can be found in the database.

What do you dislike?

There is a fee for "premium" content such as alternative bibliography formats (not MLA).

"Life Saver"

What do you like best?

If I was in a time crunch with an academic paper and didn't have the format of APA or Chicago style memorized, I would be able to count on Easy Bib to reduce the time taken to put my references, works cited, or bibliography together! I know Easy bib is reliable and do not need to stress about the quality of the sheet produced.

What do you dislike?

I disliked that at times, the autopopulated sources were not the actual source I used. I think that it could be more comprehensive with the different styles offered. I know that it has to have some method of generating revenue so its free functions are limited.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Easy bib was a resource I used throughout my studies but I could see it easily being integrated into business practices for academics needing to create reference pages and works cited.

"EasyBib Review"

What do you like best?

I think that EasyBib is one of the best academic related websites I have seen in a long time. The design of the website is fantastic and very simple to use which certainly enhances the user experience. EasyBib has multiple tabs to select from based off which reference you would use using which also is great for improvements to the interface.

What do you dislike?

There is really not a lot about EasyBib that I do not like. However, I think that their mobile preference could be enhanced. I find that the program is great because it allows for very simple movements and it also keeps the log of recent bibliographies that have been created.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Please use EasyBib as a resource. However, also be certain to make sure that the formatting is correct. While I have had very limited errors in the construction of the bibliography, this also gives to human error which is something that is inescapable.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

This website is excellent at creating truthful and correctly formatted Bibliographies for academic use. I think that this software is great because it has a variety of options to see but also gives the user the ease of creating correct citations.

"Makes Citations a Piece of Cake"

What do you like best?

EasyBib offers extensive citation help for the most common writing styles. They can automatically reference thousands of sources, and for everything that can't be cited automatically, the program will create the citation out of inputs. This is extremely helpful for students that don't know how to create citations.

What do you dislike?

It would be helpful if Easybib also showed the structure for the citation students are creating somewhere on the page, so that for future reference students would know how to make a citation for his- or herself.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Students are making better grades because they are providing accurately cited sources.

"The easiest way to cite online"

What do you like best?

I love how I can generate a citation in various formats, by simply copying and pasting a website. If I need to cite a book or magazine, I can enter the title of the the book/magazine, and the citation will auto-fill itself. It is easy to keep your citations organized with the "projects" tab.

What do you dislike?

I dislike the advertisements that are around the page. However, this issue can be solved by upgrading to a paid version of the website.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

By citing sources, you are able to back up data with facts. No one can claim you plagiarized or falsified data.

"Nice and easy"

What do you like best?

While writing research papers, easybib allows me to create citations in an easy and fast manner. Instead of typing my own citations, easybib automatically generates citations for me, to enhance my efficiency to write research papers.

Also, as a scholar I am often required to cite sources, and its ISBN recognition features are pretty useful.

What do you dislike?

Easybib does not allow direct copy and pasting of citations (it will lose the formatting of italics) Also, easybib could use some Pages support, as educational staff always uses Mac as its platform.

The autofiller for website information is often wrong and imcomplete. The web scraper could have more information scraped from the website.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

It's free for all, and it saves you a lot of time. This is a lifesaver for last minute people writing research papers.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Writing high quality research papers - increases efficiency of writing and citing at the same time, using multiple educational sources.

"Quick and easy reference guide"

What do you like best?

Easybib is an amazing tool for students to use. While it requires them to input some vital information, it produces a reference that can easily be copied and pasted into a document. They can pick which guideline they are required to use.

What do you dislike?

At times there are multiple steps to click through, which can be tedious for students. With that being said, it is important for the students to know what information is going into their citing.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

For students to be correctly citing their work and showing where their information comes from.

"EasyBib for citing sources"

What do you like best?

EasyBib was a great program when I was earning my Master's degree and writing more research papers than I care to remember. My favorite feature was the scan feature for your phone or tablet. You could scan the barcode for books to pull up all of the information for APA or MLA citation. You could also type in ISBN's or DOI's to avoid having to search for and find all of the publication information. When all else fails, a form would tell you what information to input. Finally, you select your format (such as APA) and it generates in text citations and works cited references. It saved me time and money for citing sources on academic papers. Easy copy and paste functions too!

What do you dislike?

At times, it did not truncate inputs like the actual source was supposed to. On those occasions, I would have to double check to make sure my citation was perfect for those pesky PhD professors!

Recommendations to others considering the product:

This is a great (and free) program to use for citing research and resources. You can access online and download free apps for your phone or tablet. If you have a camera on your device, you can scan barcodes of books and easily access all of the publication information without having to type it in yourself.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

My academic papers and research were properly cited. The best benefit was the scan option, and the mobile apps.

"Life Saver in School, Forgotten in Business "

What do you like best?

I hate writing bibliographies for papers! They take so long, and they are so detailed. This relieves a lot of the pain, because you can simply search for the text and it fills it in automatically. Even if the text isn't archived already, you can type in each category and it will do the formatting for you.

What do you dislike?

It could be annoying when I was looking for a certain text that wasn't listed already. I also had to double check everything, because sometimes there were mistakes.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Great resource if you need to do citations on a white paper or a class paper. I would always recommend checking the work, as I have sometimes found the tool to have inaccuracies. For example, it may not list all authors or it may think an article is a book title.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

When I was in school, I used this tool constantly. Since, graduating I have less of a need for it, but occasionally it helps when I am writing white papers and referring to other works.

"EasyBib is EASY!!"

What do you like best?

I love that my students can just put in their information and then the bibliography just populates.

What do you dislike?

I do not like that my students aren't learning how to truly write a bibliography.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Definitely worth purchasing -- especially for students with special needs. It really allows students to engage with materials and makes writing bibliographies so much easier!

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I find that we spend less time going over the technicalities of writing a bibliography and are able to spend more of our time on the content itself.

"EasyBib: A Great Reference Tool"

What do you like best?

Ease of use and a slick website. EasyBib also allows for users to create “projects” on their profile which can allows students to create citations and save them for a paper as they go and then revisit the project later on.

What do you dislike?

Could be easier to export references. Ads can be a bit frustrating for free accounts.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Prefer this site to other citation creation sites. Profile creation is a nice feature.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Tool to show students and use as examples when teaching referencing.

"A necessity for any student."

What do you like best?

This allows anyone to cite their work without any hassle. Have used it personally for years, and teach my students how to use it appropriately as well.

What do you dislike?

I dislike the interface at times, it can seem a bit crowded and confusing.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Create a profile and save your bibliographies. This way you can always add on or come back later.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We use this when citing work in presentations and papers, and have streamlined what can be an otherwise painful process.

"Do not use the autocite feature!"

What do you like best?

I like that EasyBib is free and has lots of options for types of materials to cite. EasyBib even includes citation help for obscure resources such as a Tweet.

What do you dislike?

The autocite feature is a mess. It rarely ever pulls all of the necessary information, and when it does pull information for certain fields, it is often wrong. While I like that it has the option to do the manual cite, the manual cite option is so small that many of my patrons miss that option.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

There are many other citation options that have less advertising and better algorithms to pull more accurate data.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

With an emphasis on research, there is a high expectation for accurate citations in MLA format. EasyBib makes creating citations much easier by putting it in proper MLA format and exporting to Google Docs in correct formatting.

"EasyBib is a life saver"

What do you like best?

I like that this tool is so easy to use and takes the pain out of writing bibliographies, especially when you're trying to write one in a new format (APA, Chicago, etc.)

What do you dislike?

I have yet to find something to dislike about EasyBib.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I would highly recommend this to professionals that research and write in their job. I would also highly recommend this to students of any kind -- college, high school, etc. This makes it so much easier to cite your sources correctly.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are creating more accurate citations which our compliance department loves. The benefits include accuracy, ease of use, and the satisfaction of correctly citing research our team uses.

Lots of extra information needed to get a project up and running. It is time draining.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Helping students with their papers and getting better grades. Students are more satisfied with their education and faculty is able to read papers with more quality and better sourced.

"Great resource for school"

What do you like best?

I love that the website is easy to use and provides all that you need to cite a source whether it be a book, website, etc. Not only that, but the best part is that if you search for the source you need to cite, someone might have already cited it using EasyBib so it's there for you to use! It takes off a minute or two filling in all the information (author, publisher, date) yourself.

What do you dislike?

I don't like that the only free aspect of the website is the MLA format for citing sources. In the case that a student may need to cite things in APA format (or any other format for that matter), they would have to pay a recurring fee. Because of this, most students would just use a different website or do it manually themselves.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

EasyBib makes it fast and easy to cite things for school. This way, you can ensure that you're writing it correctly in a way that your teacher will accept.

"Review"

What do you like best?

Easy to use. You can just copy and paste a website and it automatically cites the information for you. Then you can just copy and paste it on your reference page. There are many options that it can cite for you besides websites too.

What do you dislike?

There are some information that Easybib can't find for you on a website, so sometimes you would have to put it in yourself. However, that is not a big problem.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

People should definitely use Easybib if they're citing something or has to reference something for a paper/project. It is easy to use and you don't have to memorize or look up how to cite something. Easybib does it for you and it's efficient.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The benefits are that you don't have to memorize the rules for citing in MLA format or any other format. Easybib automatically does it for you. You can cite a book, website, journal, etc.

"Great tool for reports!"

What do you like best?

I like how this product is free and you can just access this product online. It is rather easy to find and it offers many different citation types (APA, MLA, etc). It is convenient because you can access the site anywhere and it saves you a lot of time when it comes to citing different works.

What do you dislike?

I dislike how it only offers one free format. The citations are usually very short which seems like an error.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Use it! It is very helpful and citing works will never be the same once you use this tool.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I am using this for reports mainly. I have realized that this is a huge time saver. I can write citations in under a minute with this tool. It would definitely take me a lot longer if I had to input each citation manually.

"Streamlining The Citing Process"

What do you like best?

EasyBib has completely changed the way that I cite my papers. Everytime I visit a website that I think would be great for my paper or other research I visit EasyBib and have it cite the website or other resource while I am using it so that I do not unintentionally plagiarize.

What do you dislike?

I don't like that you have to pay money to get more citation formats. I understand they need to make money some how in order to stay in operation. Other than that I really have no substantial issues with EasyBib.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I would recommend buying the full version so that you can have access to the other citation formats.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

This website has allowed me to give credit where credit is due and to keep me from plagiarizing other people's ideas, while making it more efficient to do research at the same time.
