Abstract

RefME is a citation management tool released in 2014 as a mobile app and subsequently as a web-based platform. It is available for free and also with an individual or institutional subscription. It shares some similar features to both free and subscription competitors, including Zotero, Mendeley, Endnote, and RefWorks. The RefME mobile app stands out as a unique asset, as most competitors do not offer a mobile app that can be used to capture and annotate citations. The simplicity of design, ease of use, availability of a free version, and its overall functionality position RefME to become a good solution for institutions looking for a citation manager that is more intuitive than most.
