EasyBib EDU Sunsetting Frequently Asked Questions

On August 31, 2018, we retired EasyBib EDU, our subscription product for institutions. It will not be replaced. Fortunately, EasyBib.com will continue to provide free citation services in MLA format for everyone.

Those who need services for APA, Chicago, and other citation styles are encouraged to check out BibMe and Citation Machine. Both offer free citation creation services in several citation styles and for a number of different source types.

Why was EasyBib EDU sunsetted?

We retired our institutional services in order to focus on our core citation functionality and smart writing tools. We believe this gives us the best opportunity to help improve student writing skills.

Is EasyBib.com shutting down?

Happily, no! EasyBib EDU was one of the subscription services offered on EasyBib.com, but is not the website itself. EasyBib.com will continue to provide great citation services in MLA format for free, along with premium options (i.e. multiple citation styles, in-text citations, paper checking, etc.) for individual subscribers.

I used EasyBib EDU. What does this mean for me?

This means that access to EasyBib EDU premium features (i.e. APA citations, parentheticals, etc.), Easybib EDU accounts, and projects/citations created with EasyBib EDU are no longer accessible. Those services ceased on August 31, 2018.

You can continue to use free EasyBib services (MLA only) by simply going to the website or signing up for a free account (to save work).

Those who need services for APA, Chicago, and other citation styles are encouraged to check out EasyBib Plus. 

There is also BibMe and Citation Machine. Both offer free citation creation services in several citation styles and for a number of different source types.
