Cambridge Core launches a new citation tool
You may have noticed that our ‘Export citation’ function has changed over the last couple of days. We are delighted to announce the launch of our new citation tool, powered by Easybib.
Our previous citation tool was provided by RefME, which has now become Cite This For Me, a Chegg service providing free citations services in APA, Chicago, Harvard, and MLA citation formats. Following this change, the RefME widget is no longer available on Cambridge Core. The launch of our new EasyBib citation tool ensures users’ ability to export citations continues.
Our new citation tool allows users to export a citation for an article, book, or chapter, from its respective landing page, any content listing, or search result. Users can also export citations for multiple pieces of content at one time, using the selection boxes.
In order to use the new tool for the first time, you may need to clear your cache, or press F5, as your browser may have cached the old version of the tool.
Researchers can choose from approximately 150 citation styles, including Bibtex, and their choice will be remembered for the duration of their browsing session. Citations can be copied, or exported to a .txt document.
We have selected 150 of the most commonly used citation styles for the launch of the new tool. However, if you find that any of the citation styles commonly used in your institution are missing then please get in touch with us through your usual contact, or on firstname.lastname@example.org and we will investigate adding this style.
We will continue to build on our new citation tool to ensure it offers the best possible service to our users. We are currently working on a number of improvements, including the ability to export citations to RIS, Word, and Easybib, which we hope to share with you soon.
