FAQs:

 

How do I import citations?
Once you have created a premium account click the "All 58 options tab" and click "Upload citations." Here you can import citations, as well as find links on how to do this. You can see examples here.

Our students cite a lot of journal articles, but sometimes EasyBib does not pull up the journal information. Why?

While we support autociting for many journal titles, our dataset isn't comprehensive. We are working with more and more databases to include a larger library of journal articles and other sources. If your article does not appear, you can manually enter the information, or if the database supports citation export, you can export the citation data as a bibtex or endnote file and then upload it into EasyBib.

Is there an export option on EasyBib for Google docs?

You can export a full formatted bibliography to Google docs by clicking on the "Save as Google docs" button on the bibliography view page.
