The American Psychological Association has announced the newest version of their publication manual: the 7th edition. It was officially released in October, arriving just over 10 years since the 6th edition was published. Here are the main changes you need to know about:
We've been asked for G Suite integration a lot recently and today we can finally announce that, in collaboration with Google, MyBib is now available on the G Suite Marketplace.
If you're a school that uses G Suite, Google Apps, or Google SSO (single sign-on) you can now add MyBib to your Google Apps domain. This adds a direct login button to the apps menu for all the students in your domain, and allows them to tie their MyBib account with their Google account.
Bibliographies are most often associated with academic papers, but academic papers aren't the only medium where information is cited. In fact, most of the information that we pass on day-to-day usually comes from somewhere else. And just like when we write academically, it's also good practice to cite the sources of the information we share in order to back up our claims and statements.
January's almost behind us, and we've just added another hot new feature to MyBib. Building a bibliography with a group can be tedious (not to mention lonely 😛). Group members are throwing sources and updates at you from every direction, and it falls on your shoulders to make sure they're all cited -- and correctly too. That's a pressure you could do without.
We have the solution! We've added a way for your group members to securely access one of your bibliographies from their own computer or device so they can make changes without you.
It's almost 2019 and we've got some big improvements on the way (spoiler: notecards is one of them). For now though, here's a couple of smaller updates.
We've just added a live preview to each citation form. Now, when adding or editing a citation you can immediately see how it will be formatted before saving it.
