Your Bibliographic Research, Streamlined

Keep your references and teams organized in projects with the world’s most straightforward BibTeX-first reference management tool, built from the ground up to stay out of your way and help you focus on writing.


Overleaf , R Markdown and Quarto are great options for getting started.

Cite in Context

Use the CiteDrive Companion browser add-on to seamlessly collect references as you conduct research across popular platforms, including Google Scholar and Pubmed, or even non-DOI websites– all without leaving the page.

Connect your bibliography

CiteDrive links with Overleaf and RStudio seamlessly. When you or your teammates alter your project, the BibTeX .bib file will automatically update your bibliography in your Overleaf or RStudio project if you use CiteDrive to manage it.

Compose in your Browser

Access your project from any browser: no more software to install, licenses to track, or clunky upgrades. You can make changes on the go, collaborate with team members in real-time, and never worry about losing your work.

BibTeX empowered

Do you keep your bibliography in a big text file? If that’s the case, CiteDrive is for you, with a user interface to go alongside it. We didn’t build CiteDrive as an afterthought for BibTeX users; we built it with them in mind.

  • Project based


Want to leverage extended BibLaTeX or your own bespoke fields? Customize your BibTeX code as you see fit while collecting and editing references, rather than BibTeX support as an afterthought. With our in-built editor, you handle your bibliography, not with opinionated forms.

  • Built-in BibTeX Editor

  • Natbib
  • Jurabib

Control and Error-Handling

You can easily save papers from your browser with just a few clicks - displaying a preview for you to modify. CiteDrive will notify you if your format is erroneous and there are duplicate papers so that you can collaborate without interfering with one another.
