Saturday, January 14, 2017 shutting down February 15th, 2017

With little-to-no work over the 10 or so years this website has been up, it's grown unexpectedly popular at certain points in time. However, while the broader web has evolved and changed a lot, this site hasn’t kept pace in recent years.

Looking at the landscape now compared to when we started, the competition has improved a lot. There are new websites/apps for citing sources which have far better features than citation creation… A simple google search for "citation" shows how apparent this is. It's now easier than ever to write in these formats, and the citation creation website has become far less relevant in accomplishing this.

TLDR; with where things are at, I've decided it’s come time to say goodbye to this old website, and on February 15th, will shut down. 

While the website is not nearly as popular as it once was, if you still use the service I hope you are able to find an adequate replacement. As mentioned, there are many options available online.

Thanks for all the support and feedback offered by the users over these years - particularly the thankful emails and comments on the blog - it’s been very encouraging and much appreciated.

Version 3.5

New update adds onto the refresh of yesterday with a bit of a cleanup on the style changes and the addition of the Chicago citation style. I'm going to be referring to this part as a beta release, so please be sure to check citation formatting before publication, and comment if you notice any issues!

Version 3.0 - new design

A new layout has been rolled out - highlights include:
  • General cleanup - simpler colour scheme.
  • Less ads means less clutter (please remember though... is a free service)
  • Show that you "Like" the site on facebook
There haven't really been any functionality changes except for one or two bugfixes, so hopefully this should be a seamless transition - but please be sure to comment if you notice anything.

Apologies to everyone for the downtime over the last 24 hours. has been migrated to a new server and the move took slightly longer than expected - but the service has now returned to normal.

New version + New layout shortly.

Its been a little while since an update, but soon Citation Creation will be getting a small overhaul in design and functionality in version 1.0. Design wise there's not much to be said - just expect improved accessibility and an easier to navigate layout. On functionality, we should be seeing custom citation formats aswell.
