RefME is Referencing, MadeEasy.

At RefME we believe that technology should help students to access and share knowledge, without the unnecessary pain. Our founder, Tom Hatton, was a dyslexic student who was constantly frustrated with how complex and time-consuming the process of citing sources in your coursework can be. After graduating he then set about assembling an awesome team to create a tool to make this right. And so RefME was born. 

RefME is the first tool to accurately automate citations. Students can scan a book barcode directly from their smartphones, or add references with one click. RefME then automatically generates a bibliography, correctly formatting it in any of over 7000 different styles. All work is backed up and synced to the cloud, so students can access, collaborate, and add to their projects anywhere, on any device. 

Since our launch in 2014, RefME has become one of the fastest EdTech products in Europe, adding nearly a million users in the first few months, with thousands more students joining the “Refolution” every day. We’re based in London with a rapidly growing and passionate team. We’re looking for amazing people to join us as we expand to new territories on our quest to help millions of students all over the world to love their citations.
