Introduction to Bibcitation for Citation Management

Bibcitation is a free, easy-to-use, next-generation open-source citation management tool, designed for academics of all levels.  Developed in Vancouver by a local startup, it aims to simplify and streamline the process of generating accurate and responsible citations to make the research process easier and transparent. It serves as an effective learning tool for students encountering different citation formats by displaying citation creation in real-time. This is a tool built specifically for academics and to address the gaps in tools that are currently used and freely available online.
