Autocite is one EasyBib's most helpful features! It allows users to simply search for their source by name and the system will then generate the citation instantly.
Autocite works by extracting all available, provided metadata about a source (metadata is information about information, for example: date of publication, original publisher, etc.) to generate a citation. It is the responsibility of the sources' publisher to tag the metadata correctly, so if the source's metadata is not properly tagged or is incompletely tagged, EasyBib will prompt you to complete the missing information manually.
